Rackspace “Adopts” Ed White Middle School

On Saturday August 17, over 85 Rackers, plus spouses and children, joined forces to beautify and update Ed White Middle School, Rackspace’s third adopted school in the Roosevelt Cluster.

Rackers landscaped, decorated the assistant principals’ offices, painted, and even built a stage for the theater department. On top of the overall refresher the school received, Rackspace donated school supplies for the entire year to over 500 students.

Principal, Phillip Carney, and Superintendent, Richard Middleton, were thrilled with the effort Rackers put forth and were excited to talk with Rackspace CEO Lanham Napier and Chairman Graham Weston about Rackspace’s future involvement with North East Independent School District.

Rack Gives Back would like to give a huge thanks to all of the volunteers who participated at Adopt-A-School and to the local What-A-Burger and HEB for donating food and drinks for the event!
