MCDONOUGH, GA - Chilli of the Grammy Award-winning super group TLC surprised the students of Eagles Landing Middle School (ELMS) with Reeboks and teen group We Are Toonz on the morning of April 23, 2014 with their very own #ChillisCrewDay to kick off CRCT Standardized Testing.
Recognized were four ELMS students selected by the Principal Dr. Earlene Crump for citizenship, community service, and setting a positive example for their peers. Reebok gifted these exemplary students with a pair of sneakers from their new collection. “I think it's important to reward kids to keep them motivated," Chilli said. "Yes we should reward good grades but we should also reward great character."
ELMS students were treated to another surprise as the deejay “World Famous G-Mack” dropped the beat for the popular dance “The Nae Nae,” as the group We Are Toonz ran out onto the gym floor to perform. ELMS Students stood up in the stands and danced “The Nae Nae” along with Chilli and We Are Toonz.
Afterwards students from each grade had a chance to dance-battle for the best “Nae Nae”. Chilli and the group gave out prizes sponsored by V-103 Atlanta and rolling out Magazine. The singer also gifted ELMS an autographed poster as a reminder to continue doing their best in school, and serve as positive examples. The spring testing kick off ended with students hugging and thanking Chilli for the unforgettable morning. Chilli’s Crew Day at ELMS was made possible thanks to Reebok, V-103 Atlanta and rolling out Magazine.
Chilli and her foundation partnered with the ELMS to encourage students to do their best on the CRCT. She took time out to visit after coming off a promo run for Oxygen's Celebrities Undercover and in between TLC rehearsal for their upcoming overseas tour.
