Adopt-A-Highway: Students And Staff Collect Litter

On Sunday, October 24, members of the ConVal Class of 2024, joined by Class Advisors Jen Kiley and Jim Wickham, students from other classes, and Principal Heather McKillop collected 40 bags of litter along a two-mile portion of Route 202, stretching from the ConVal jug handle north towards Hancock. 

Several passing cars recognized the students’ efforts to give back to their community with friendly honks. The cleanup was one of four litter collection dates that the Class of 2024 had committed to through the NH Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway program in April (see also this web post).

As Jim Wickham noted after the event: “It was a great day working with these students. They gave back to their community in an invaluable way. They made a challenging job enjoyable as they approached it with a fun attitude — music, snacks, and friendly chatter.”
