Sometimes in life, the best lessons are learned while caring for others. To find one’s true worth, do not look for it in flashes of brilliance. Rather, look closer and you will find it hidden within the daily ledger of one’s work.
The Boone Career and Technical Center’s Adventure Tourism class is the only one of its kind throughout the state. The students, along with their fellow classmates at the Boone Career and Technical Center have adopted the six-mile stretch of highway from Corridor G to the East side of Drawdy Mountain. Throughout the year, you may see them cleaning the roadsides of Route 3 and the stream of Rock Creek, a tributary of the Little Coal Watershed. The entire school including students, teachers and service employees participates in the fall and spring cleanups on the creek and roadsides. The Boone Sheriff’s Department and the Department of Environmental Protection do a great job of slowing down traffic to keep everyone safe. The D.E.P provides us with the tools to remain visible and safe throughout the cleanup. The truck-driving academy helps us remove the trash immediately during the course of the events.
