Because of your votes, two Whitewater High teachers are sporting some glam looks after winning a makeover contest sponsored by The Avenue as part of its ongoing Partners in Education initiative.
Math teacher Jacqueline Mullen and healthcare science teacher Julie Wolfe represented Whitewater High in THE STYLE upGRADE challenge that was sponsored by The Avenue and Cousins Properties last month. The teachers were among 10 from the metro-Atlanta area chosen by their schools to participate.
Pictures of the teachers and their profiles were posted online, and people were asked to vote for the two teachers they wanted to win. Mullen and Wolfe had the highest number of votes.
Whitewater High’s Advanced Marketing class, a total of 21 students lead by teacher Krystin Glover, developed public relations tactics, promotional materials and online strategies to promote the contest. The class was also responsible for selecting two of the school’s teachers to participate. They did so by distributing self-nomination applications to all teachers, and interviewing each one based on pre-determined questions from The Avenue.
“THE STYLE upGRADE has been a great way for our students to obtain hands-on marketing experience while recognizing two deserving teachers. The Avenue’s continued support allows us to give our students opportunities to apply their skills outside the classroom and engage the community,” says Glover.
The teachers received their makeovers on September 30 at The Avenue Peachtree City. Talbots and White House Black Market provided their new wardrobes; hair and makeup was courtesy of Ici Paris Day Spa and Salon. The Memory Cottage took complimentary before and after photos of the winners.
“We were thrilled with the way the communities and students came together to support their teachers. The impressive number of votes the teachers received shows that students went above and beyond in their marketing efforts,” says Kim Tanalgo-Minshew, marketing manager of The Avenue Peachtree City.
