Bevel Gifts Clark Atlanta University A Locker Room Renovation

The men’s grooming brand transformed the HBCU’s basketball team’s locker room into a state-of-the-art barbershop and lounge space.

Earlier this month, Bevel announced a donation to Clark Atlanta University to remodel its men’s basketball team’s facility.

The men’s grooming brand transformed the locker room into a state-of-the-art barbershop and lounge space that provides head-to-toe grooming and personal care for the student athletes. 

“I am very appreciative for the safe space that was created for our student athletes to focus on academics and prepare for game day. Additionally, I am also very thankful for the national partnership has brought to our entire athletic department,” CAU’s head basketball coach Alfred Jordan said in a press release. 

“The opportunity to help Coach Jordan give his players at CAU a top tier locker room and player-exclusive barbershop was something we just couldn't pass up,” Breann Davis, senior director of marketing at Walker & Company Brands — creators of BEVEL — added to the release. “As an Atlanta native myself, I know how important CAU is to the city. I also know well the disparity that can exist between HBCUs and Power 5 programs, like Georgia or Alabama as examples. I was excited to help close that by bringing to fruition a space at the caliber of something you'd see within a professional program. Seeing CAU student athletes, coaches, and administration's excitement and gratitude for this new space was amazing. They deserve all of this.”

The renovation was featured on HGTV's reality show Married to Real Estate on Thursday (Feb. 15). Hosts Egypt Sherrod and Mike Jackson worked with Jordan to revamp the space into haven for the Clark Atlanta University Panthers. You can watch the full episode “Education in Design” on Max.
