Student Service Learning Project set for October 6
LOVERDALE -- Cloverdale High School Principal Sonny Stoltz and Doug Wokoun reported that CHS students will participate in the inaugural Student Service Learning Project Friday, Oct. 6 at 12:30 p.m.
Students will do community service projects such as cleaning up yards for senior citizens and abandoned properties. CHS is partnering with Soul Harvest Church, First National Bank, Endeavor Communications, POET, the Town of Cloverdale and Our Community Bank for this event.
Whitaker pointed out that the Youth Philanthropy Committee has available funds for student-led projects, and Stoltz said Soul Harvest Church had raised $5,000 in 10 minutes for T-shirts and pizza.
“We’ve talked a lot about being a community partner,” Superintendent Greg Linton said, “and this really puts that relationship in a good position to be out in the community and showing that we want to be an active partner. There will be a lot of good lessons for our students.”
