Georgia United Foundation Provides $19K Makeover to Cousins Middle School

Covington, GA (October 7, 2019) – On October 4, 2019, the students, faculty and staff at Cousins Middle School celebrated the opening of their upgraded music room, thanks to Georgia United Foundation’s sixth annual School Crashers® program.

Out of 300+ entries across the state, Cousins Middle School was selected to receive a music room “mini-crash” which included new carpet, courtesy of Mohawk, a Guitar Center brand sound system, Wenger risers, posture chairs, 40 new music stands, five electronic keyboards and three boomboxes. 

The makeover grant totaled over $19,000.

Georgia United Business Development Officer, Leigh Gant, stated, “It was an honor to help improve the school’s music room. We know it’s imperative for students to have an outlet that encourages self-expression and we hope the new musical instruments and equipment inspires their creativity and supports their social development.”

Cousins Middle School is a Title 1 school, located at 8187 Carlton Trail NW, in Covington, Georgia and has an enrollment of 800+ students.
