(Riverton, Wyo.) – The annual Wolverine’s In Action Community Service Day was held this morning as some 800 RHS students spread out around town from 8 a.m. to 12-noon and performed community service projects.
Parks were cleaned, downed trees and tree branches were collected and hauled away, leaves were rakes, trash was pickup along the highway entrances into the city and work was done on the school campus.
Wolverines In Action Service Day is an annual event hosted by the high school when students from each home room are assigned a task from a list of projects submitted by the community. Staff from the central office also helped, and Superintendent Terry Snyder was the traveling “chain saw guy” helping cut up those limbs too large to fit in the back of pickups or trailers. RHS Principal John Griffin had his truck and a trailer out picking up the branches the students had cleaned up.
County10.com was out early today to capture some of the work. Students we photographed were:
Cara Carper, Larry Hutchins, Trysten, Crichton, Deyton Henry, Elija Dvorak, Richard Anderson, Megan Bolte, Tanner Frymire, and Tristen Miller on West Park Avenue with RHS Media Center Director Heather Morrison and Candace McCue from the Central Office.
