Summer at R. L. Young can be quite lonely since our students are busy having fun and resting their minds. But it is definitely the time to get some things done on campus. Although Mr. Jemison is mighty handy and works extremely hard in the summertime heat, everyone deserves a hand. Well, what about 44 extra hands?
St. James Methodist Church from Montgomery participated in the Student Life Camp at Shocco Springs. When most folks think of camp, they probably don't envision paint brushes, lugging junk to the dumpster, scraping tape off of boards, cleaning an attic, etc. These 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th graders came ready, willing, and able to make a huge difference at R. L. Young. Along with them, were 4 adult supervisors who worked as hard, or even harder than the students.
I was most impressed with their cheerful can-do attitudes and their willingness to complete difficult tasks. Of course, they walked away with a BOB Award (Bend Over Backwards), a CD of our Birthday Celebration, and big thanks from the principal.
Thank you St. James! You were wonderful..
