C-G-D graduates' life projects impact their lives and the lives of many others

Once again, the Clarion-Goldfield-Dows senior class invested in the lives of untold numbers with their senior LIFE PROJECTS, which also make a difference in their own lives. The graduating class contributed nearly 2,000 hours of volunteer work (minimum of 25 hours for each senior), which have made a difference in our community this year and beyond. Some work will leave a legacy for decades.

Their project work is part of Senior English. It was under the direction of first year instructor Mrs. Kristina Moore, a recent graduate of Central College.

“I really enjoyed this class and their projects,” she said. “It is a way to give back to the community which has done so much for the students. They gain a lot from doing something for others.”

Students are allowed to select the project on which they work. Their decisions are cleared by Moore. The following is a small sampling of some of their projects:

Akira Harrington organized the C-G-D art program glazes and Mikayla Hennigar helped with demonstration videos for high school art students. Treyor Jackson organized all the music and folders of the Pep Band.

Claire Anderson worked with the December Spirit of Giving program and David Anderson volunteered with the Clarion Fire Department. Tamra Baccam and Tabitha Sweazey volunteered at the local care center. Brendon Boyd set new flagpoles at the baseball field.
