El Passo, TX (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
A recent graduating senior class at Bel Air High School in El Paso, Texas left behind a senior gift that will get use every single day of the year.
The graduating class chose to donate 120 twelve-inch clocks for use in all the classrooms and one large forty-eight inch clock for the school cafeteria. Purchased online from The Big Clock Store, the clocks were designed around the school logo and featured the Bel Air mascot, the Highlander. The graduating class chose the clocks knowing well that future students would soon be spending their class time watching those very clocks, counting down the days and hours until their own graduations.
Gabby Sarabia, an English teacher at Bel Air was the class sponsor. “The senior class wanted to leave a gift that the entire school would use on a daily basis. Some suggestions were benches or signs to adorn the school, until finally, clocks became the solid choice…since a clock is something for the entire school to look at every day,” Sarabia said.
Sarabia says she researched large clocks online when she came across the Big Clock Store. After that, all it took was a few emails and a copy of the school’s mascot, and the Big Clock Store had created a new custom design for the school. The design featured the school’s Highlander mascot as well as the name of the graduating class.
Thebigclockstore.com specializes in custom wall clocks. Clock sizes range from 12" to 60". The company typically makes single clocks for homes and businesses, but can additionally fill large orders for multiple clocks as well. The clocks can be made with any picture, logo, or phrase. They can be made to match any decor, wallpaper or fabric. These completely unique, personalized clocks, are the perfect addition to any home, office or school.
Sarabia says that large donations like this are a reflection of a long tradition of Bel Air pride, and that she wants the clocks to help continue that tradition: “We are hoping that future generations will look with genuine pride at the senior gift from the awesome graduating class of 2012.”
