Vivian B Adams School is revamping their kitchen

By  | 

OZARK Ala.(WTVY)- Vivian B Adams School in Ozark received a grant for more than $44,000 to help rebuild their kitchen.

Army Aviation Credit Union awarded them the grant.

Their old kitchen was built in the late 80's and now they are trying to bring the kitchen up to the 21st century by upgrading appliances and making everything handicapped accessible.

The kitchen will also offer an island to help students learn.

The school wants to have a universal design so that their kitchen can be accessible to anyone.

Vivian B Adams Resource Coordinator Susan Owens said, “The biggest problem we have with our kitchen is that its not handicap accessible. Our appliances aren't handicap friendly, our surfaces aren't handicap friendly, and the levels of our cabinets aren't handicap friendly.

Their goal is to have the kitchen up and running next year.
