Hugo the Hornet. A Lowe’s bucket drumline. Upbeat music and dancing students. University Park Creative Arts Elementary School students thought they were having a normal assembly, then walked into a celebration.

Watch the video above to see students’ priceless reactions to Marvin Williams and Kemba Walker’s surprise announcement.

The project at University Park is part of Mission Critical, a new and exciting program established by Lowe’s and the Charlotte Hornets to give local schools much-needed upgrades.
