This past Sunday, students made an impact on their community by helping with five separate projects under the leadership of outreach coordinator David Kabanje. Two groups of students removed litter from just over 2 miles of highway 16, including the segment adopted by the Wisconsin Academy Student Association. Another group of students raked leaves, picked up black walnuts, and mowed the lawn for a community family. Students also helped out at the Lighthouse Thrift Store relocating bookshelves, sorting donations, and hauling junk wood to the burn pile. Students helped clean homes for several elderly families as well as trimming weeds, removing brush, and cleaning stalls for a horse therapy ranch.
Wisconsin Academy is committed to training students for service. This is based on the belief that true education “prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come.” (Ed 13)
