In a demonstration of both school pride and community spirit, the members of the ConVal Class of 2024 and their advisors have committed themselves to a highway cleanup project for the next two years.
The first of the cleanups took place on Saturday, May 22, on a two-mile section of Highway 202 leading north to Hancock and Antrim.
“It was hard work and we filled every garbage bag we brought,” said Class Advisor Jen Kiley.
“Passersby waved, honked their horns, and gave a big thank you to the students. It was awesome to see students doing their part to keep our community clean,” added Jim Wickham, the other Advisor to the Class of 2024.
For their commitment to keeping the highway clean, the class is being recognized on the Adopt-A-Highway sign at the jug handle leading to the school entrance.
