Philip Barbour High School students headed out early to spend the morning working to beautify the community.
Students donned shovels, picks and tennis shoes to remove overgrown vegetation at Philippi United Methodist Church.
Officials said the work is a great way to get students out in the community and fulfilling some community service hours.
“We get a lot of support from our community for all the different functions we do at the school. When we can come out and help our community as well, it’s a great thing all around. It just shows that a school and a community work hand in hand,” said PBHS Principal Ronald Keener.
The students will be working for two days to complete the project.
They will work to clear out the shrubbery and railroad ties as well as add new landscaping.
