True Value of Taylorsville donates paint to schools

Three schools in Alexander County will now be able to spruce up their buildings and improve the appearance of their schools. Students and staff members have pride in their schools when they see the investment from the community and district leaders. True Value of Taylorsville is investing in the school system with a donation. 

Alexander County Schools was awarded 90 gallons of paint on June 24. The paint was presented to principals and administrators by co-owners Jeff Davis and Joey Cothren and their hard-working staff. 

 The donation was made possible through a grant that Jeff Davis applied for on behalf of Alexander County Schools. The grant is through the Paint a Brighter Future grant program run by the True Value Corporation. 

The paint donation is one of many from True Value of Taylorsville to the school system.
