May 4, 2009 – Dillon, South Carolina

After national attention from president Obama, a rural South Carolina school gets an extreme makeover. The Dillon, South Carolina junior high students arrived this morning to find the interior of their run-down school completely re-furbished.

Chicago based Sagus International provided everything from new paint with murals on the walls to ergonomically-designed, state of the art desks and chairs for the J.V. Martin students.

The school was highlighted in a speech by president Barack Obama when an eighth-grader asked for help in repairing the outdated school.
