In appreciation for the company’s help in redesigning the library and parent center at James Madison High School, Dallas ISD recognized Capital One Bank as its 2014–15 Outstanding Business Partner.
Madison High School Principal Gayle Ferguson Smith said the redesigned library is an inspirational space that students utilize even in their free time.
“It’s now such a comfortable space,” Smith said.
Capital One and The Heart of American Foundation also transformed the school’s parent center this school year by removing no-longer-used cooking equipment, rebuilding walls, hiding original piping, and installing new flooring. Volunteers also assembled furniture, loaded bookshelves with resources geared for parents of high school students, and freshened the walls with inspirational signs.
Capital One Bank’s efforts were recognized at a Dallas ISD volunteer recognition ceremony in April.
