Green Room Makeover for Stephens Auditorium

Stephens Logo

Students at Ames High School, involved with the Business Engagement Collaborative, recently partnered with C.Y. Stephens Auditorium on a project they found on the Clearinghouse to design and implement the redecorating/renovation of the Green Room facilities at the auditorium. The space hadn’t been updated in quite a while and the students worked with the Iowa State Center to put together a vision, budget, and timeline that would meet their approval. They found an opportunity to bring in the talents of students in a woodworking course at the high school and they also got a crash course on handling change management as COVID-19 impacted their project.  Check out the video below to learn more.
