Take a moment the next time you’re at O.P. to admire the sun shades, funded by the American Academy of Dermatology’s grant! Here’s a nice article in South Charlotte Weekly.
New Shades
The OPES Foundation was notified in the spring that we won the 2014 American Academy of Dermatology’s shade structure grant. The award was for $8,000 to purchase permanent shade structures to cover playground areas and protect our students and teachers from prolonged sun exposure. Installation was made and celebrated recently. Thank you Dr. David Schulman and Hollie Towse with South Charlotte Dermatology in Pineville, NC for being our sponsoring dermatologist and thank you Christi Hays for authoring the grant and helping coordinate installation!
