Greetings Fisk Family,
I wanted to send a quick note to thank you for your participation by voting for Fisk in the Home Depot Retool Your School Grant Challenge.
While the final grantees will not be known until June 15, 2010, we can say that, at the close of voting, Fisk received in excess of 10,000 votes and had secured the 5th highest ranking of total votes (a total of 57 schools are in the competition). To put this in perspective, many of the schools we are competing against have student populations that are up to 12 times larger than Fisk’s. And while the votes are but a portion of the criteria considered by the Home Depot judges, we can certainly say that your broad-based and enthusiastic support was an essential part of a good showing in this phase of the competition. We are most appreciative.
When Home Depot makes their final announcement, we will be sure to keep you informed as it regards Fisk’s performance.
All the best,
Vice President for Communication and Public Relations
