Cutting the Ribbon on New Changing SpacePosted by Sharon Lauer
Picasso once said, “There is only one way to look at things until someone shows us how to look at them with different eyes.” This past summer, our school turned two small and typical boys and girls locker rooms into a large, gracious changing space that is safe and welcoming for all other kids, who can now both change in privacy and gather comfortably with their classmates and teachers.
It was through the generosity of Amanda and Bryan Hanson, who immediately understood the vision of this project and their son, Jax, who this pas spring inspired me to “see things in a different way” that this gender-neutral changing space came about. Of course, generosity inspires other giving, and the Hansons’ generosity inspired alumni parent, Scott Brownlow – father of Sammy Brownlow, ’07 and current Unquowa teaching assistant – to bring in the needed construction crews to fast-track this project so that we could open the changing space this fall, just five months after the project’s first thought.
We anticipate this new space serving as a Green Room for theatre and classroom discussion space for health and P.E. as well, as we continue to look at this space “with different eyes.”
