GHS Give Back Day

Friday was Give-Back-Day by Greenville High School students.

Held in the spring the last few years, Give-Back Day is an opportunity for GHS students to serve their communities. Approximately 115, or about 25 percent of the student enrollment participated.

One of the projects was the planting of a tree along East Harris Avenue to complete a row of trees on the south side of the street. Students set the tree and spread mulch around it.

Jeff Ketten, Greenville Street Department supervisor, said the tree planting as it will help Greenville maintain its status as an Arbor Day City and participate in the Tree City USA program.
