Teens from Creative Technologies Academy hit the White Pine Trail last Friday, April 29, to pick up trash.
The activity was a Service Learning Project for Mr. Ben Watson’s and Mrs. Jennifer Cathey’s Class Meeting Advisory. “We meet with these students (a mix of grades 9-12) every Friday to discuss character education and community service,” explained Cathey. “The students chose this particular task for their service learning project.”
Half of the group cleaned the trail from Pine Street to Morley Park, and the other half went north, from Pine Street to just north of 18 Mile Road. The group collected eight large bags of trash in the 2-1/2 hours they cleaned.
