Members of SWR High School’s Global Awareness Club continue to make a difference with their efforts in the service-learning program. Along with adviser Ms. Brenna Gilroy, they initially planned a beach cleanup, but when they scouted the local beaches, fortunately they found that they were well cared for. Junior Anja Minty, who serves as the club president, suggested a small park in Shoreham that has a trail that stretches to the Long Island Sound bluff.
“It was a beautiful day, and there was a surprising amount of trash to clean in such a small stretch of woods,” Gilroy said, noting that many of the students were in the high school’s stage production of “Rumors” the night before and kept their commitment to the Sunday morning cleanup.
The officers have more local cleanups planned for the future and are spearheading a coat drive through November.
The Shoreham-Wading River School District thanks these students for their volunteer efforts, leadership skills and continued work in spreading awareness about important matters.
