The Style Upgrade

As a part of its ongoing Partners in Education initiatives, The Avenue® East Cobb is partnering with Lassiter High School's Marketing Department (part of the Career Tech Department) to treat teachers to THE STYLE upGRADE.  Over 30 teachers from Lassiter High School nominated themselves to win a style makeover sponsored by The Avenue East Cobb.  Voting is now closed.  Based on over 8,700 votes from the community, two lucky teachers were selected to win a style makeover package valued at over $1,000. 
Congratulations to the two winners - Ms. Beal and Ms. GreenMs. Cook, Ms. Matthews and Ms. Prestwood all received gift baskets from The Avenue along with a $100 Visa Gift Card for their own STYLE upGRADE. 
Thank you to CLIX Portrait Studios, Chico's, LensCrafters, Talbots, Talbots Woman and Van Michael Salon (Coming Soon to The Avenue East Cobb) for their generous support.  THE STYLE upGRADE photos will be revealed live on Lassiter Network News and online at the end of March.
FINALIST #1 - Ms. Beal (above) has been teaching for 30 years and currently teaches history, health inclusion and special education.  Originally from Plymouth, IN, she enjoys being able to turn failing students into passing students.  Ms. Beal says, "I rarely shop for myself.  I would like to learn what to wear and what best suits my body type."
FINALIST #2 - Ms. Cook (above) has been teaching science for 16 years.  Originally from San Antonio, TX, she enjoys needlepoint and sailing in her free time.  When asked how often she shops, Ms. Cook responded, "The last time I bought clothes for myself was 1994.  I would like to gain a better understanding of today's styles."
FINALIST #3 - Ms. Green (above) has been a counselor for nine years.  Originally from Powder Springs, GA, her best teaching moment was when a student told her she changed his life.  Ms. Green shared, "I'm no more deserving than anyone else." After losing her husband last September, she would appreciate the pampering.
FINALIST #4 - Ms. Matthews (above) has been teaching science for six years.  Originally from Armuchee, GA, she enjoys running, playing with her dog, singing and investing in others.  Her biggest fashion challenge is finding tops that fit correctly.  Ms. Matthews says, "I have 'swimmers' shoulders and arms."
FINALIST #5 - Ms. Prestwood (above) has been teaching math for 31 years.  Originally from Omaha, NB, her biggest fashion challenge is being more color than style oriented.  Ms. Prestwood only shops once or twice a year and says, "I would love to learn to dress my age.  I hope to receive advice about clothes and style."
