PHS Key Club & FFA part of National Recognition

Link to article at Keep America Beautiful:

National Non-Profit Organization Keep America Beautiful chose Keep Rome/Floyd Beautiful as the November Affiliate of the Month!
KRFB in turn recognized Pepperell Key Club and Pepperell FFA for keeping Lindale beautiful under their Adopt-a-Mile program.  

Here is what Keep Rome/Floyd Beautiful coordinator had to say about our Pepperell High students:
The Pepperell High School Key Club and FFA together have adopted a mile in their community of Lindale, GA.  This is a group of 15 to 18-year-olds that, over the course of the summer and into the beginning of this school year, put in almost 100 hours of service to their mile.
I have chose to honor them not just because they worked over the summer break but because, when they did serve their mile, they would bring their own lawn equipment and mow the grass along the sidewalks and their neighbors' yards, and clean off graffiti in addition to cleaning the litter.
These kids have shown dedication, heart, and pride in the community they live in.  I am proud to say that they are a part of the KRFB family and our community!
