Sagus CEO Answers 8th Grader’s Plea to Congress

When 8th grader Ty’Sheoma Bethea wrote to Congress in 2009 asking for help for her dilapidated school, Congress wasn’t the only one who heard her plea. President Obama quoted her letter in his February address to Congress, a speech that caught the attention of Darryl Rosser, former CEO of Sagus International.

Rosser decided to visit Bethea’s school. After touring the rundown J.V. Martin Middle School, Rosser knew he had to do something. He rallied his employees at Sagus International to manufacture more than a quarter of a million dollars worth of furniture for the South Carolina school.

Rosser’s generosity was recently featured on 20/20. Watch the clip below to hear more of his story.

SCHOOLSin is proud to carry the Artco-Bell and Midwest Folding product lines of Sagus International.
