Charging to a green future
Last week I had the pleasure of attending Athena Elementary School's cleanup day. I put a couple photos in the paper, but I didn't think this one would work for the story. It does, however, encompass the effort, vigor and excitement these kids put into their jobs that day. This is a group of second graders charged across the field after picking up trash along Wildhorse Road and around the school. With their bright orange vests on, I though they resembled bright flowers or leaves blown by a strong wind. Their enthusiasm was no exception that day as kids happily pulled weeds and picked up garbage to help out the community.
