In a demonstration of both school pride and community spirit, the ConVal Class of 2024 has committed itself to a highway cleanup project for the next two years. For their commitment to remove litter four times a year from a two-mile section of Highway 202 leading north to Hancock and Antrim, the class is being recognized on the Adopt-A-Highway sign at the jug handle leading to the school entrance.
The idea originated with the freshman class advisors Jen Kiley and Jim Wickham. “At the beginning of March, I noticed that the Adopt-A-Highway sign across from ConVal, near the Cornucopia greenhouses, was available,” Kiley said. “So I contacted the state highway department to find out more about the program.”
“Jim and I spoke with the Class of 2024 officers, and they agreed that this would be a good opportunity to give back to the community and lend visibility to our class,” Kiley continued. “We are hoping to schedule our first cleanup for early May.”
