Fort Washakie High students work with SBC to clean-up the community

The Shoshone Business Council gave Fort Washakie High School students a challenge in early April and the students responded with a clean-up day at Washakie Reservoir. In all, nearly three pickup loads of trash were collected by students and staff on Thursday May 19th in efforts to give back to the community. "I was impressed with the way our students came together and contributed to making the area a little cleaner for everyone to enjoy and appreciate the natural beauty around," Scott Polson said. Ben Snyder of Tribal Fish and Game helped to make this happen for our students and provided us the necessary resources to get our students going. After the clean-up, students participated in a memorial walk for two classmates who passed away in February.

"Our intention is to develop a strong student leadership team for next school year that will continue to work with the SBC on a more regular basis. With the Shoshone Reunion coming up next month, we are looking for ways for our students to be involved and continue our service to the community. Our relationship with the Council is important to continue this momentum." *h/t Scott Polson / Pitchengine Communities* #county10 #news
