OHS Students Volunteer for Service Learning Project Day

On May 2nd, Ord Junior/Senior High School students and staff members gave back to their community in a very meaningful way by working on numerous projects to beautify our area during the Service Learning Project Day!  A total of 232 students and 40 staff members volunteered their time and talents at various locations throughout Valley County, including Bussell Park and Auble’s Pond walkway cleanup, Ord Jr./Sr. High School landscaping project, Highways 11 & 70 litter clean up, Fort Hartsuff State Historical Park  grounds cleanup, Valley County Fairgrounds set up for  the  Jr. High Rodeo, American Red Cross Blood Drive coordination program, Anderson Island trail clean up, and other small group environmental projects.

OHS Principal, Mark Hagge commented, “I would like to extend a big Chanticleer thank you to our entire student body and staff for participating in the Ord Junior/Senior High School Service Learning Project Day.  I would also like to sincerely thank the community members that collaborated with the Ord High School Improvement Committee to coordinate this philanthropic experience.  The community support for our school and youth is far reaching with the support of scholarships, booster clubs, and school facility improvements and much more.  We are glad to be able to give back to all of the people and businesses that continually support us with this community service project.”

Keep America Beautiful/Keep Loup Basin Beautiful partnered with the school to support this event by providing numerous supplies including a Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup banner, GLAD trash bags, event posters, “Green Starts Here” volunteer stickers, hand sanitizers, and packets of flower seeds.  Linda Studnicka from Keep Loup Basin Beautiful also promoted the project on the radio.
