A.C. Beyda Builds High-Profile Basketball Court for NBC's The Ellen Show
On December 10, 2019, Ellen DeGeneres and First Lady Michelle Obama officially announced their once in a lifetime gift to Randle Highlands Elementary School in Washington D.C. The gift was comprised of $100,000 cash, a brand new state-of-the-art basketball court branded with school mascot and logos, a brand new Apple-sponsored computer lab, and personal I-pads for each of the 350 children.
A.C. Beyda was brought in to handle the full scope of construction and finishing of the basketball court which required mobilizing asphalt and grading crews on very short notice, and running a seamless schedule to have all work completed before the winter cold set in.
The entire A.C. Beyda team is humbled to have brought so much joy to the children and faculty of this school. With 65% of the children, either homeless or on foster care, this project sends the all-important message that children are our future and we must do anything possible to keep them shooting for the stars.
