Azrock Tile Donation Helped Transform Nashville School
In a recent episode of ABC-TV’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Azrock’s Karim Kolors tile helped transform The Lighthouse School near Nashville, Tennessee. The school was completely destroyed in the 2010 flooding that devastated much of the Nashville area.
In addition to educating young minds, The Lighthouse School has provided shelter, food, water, clothing, counseling, and a variety of social and financial services to the Nashville community for over 30 years. After the 2010 floods, the school’s finances were nearly depleted and it was faced with the harsh reality of possibly shutting its doors.
Several businesses donated material and labor and hundreds of local volunteers joined the construction effort. This group accomplished the daunting task of building a new 6,500 square foot structure in one week, which normally takes construction crews multiple months to complete. Azrock did its part by providing the school with its Karim Kolors tile which transformed the school’s interior into a fun and cheerful space. The episode shows Azrock Karim Kolors tile in the entry way and corridors as well as in the Lighthouse playroom of the school.
