Knox High School Students Plan Community Project

Knox High School Students Plan Community Project

Published: WKVI   October 25, 2014 By: Ed Hasnerl

Forty Knox High School senior English students have decided to pool their dreams in a unique project using the skills learned in their classrooms, such as research, writing, construction, marketing, and computer knowledge to develop a vacant Knox downtown lot into an inviting, landscaped, park-like area.

Hoping to coordinate those dreams with the Knox City Council and the Park Board, the enterprising kids are planning a gazebo, maybe a pergola, benches, a picnic table or two, and other improvements.

The group hopes to hold fundraisers to finance the ambitious project and are counting on their own “elbow grease,” depending on their individual skills and interests, as well as donated labor from professionals and other volunteers.

It could be completed by next spring if the appropriate governmental, bodies approve the project.
