On Thursday, February 21, 2019, nine members and the sponsor of Marion High School’s Interact Club traveled to Myrtle Beach to accept The Lower Region Group Leadership Award from the South Carolina Litter Control Association for their efforts to keep Marion, SC beautiful and free from litter. Interact is a part of the
Adopt-A-Highway project, and twice a year members commit 2-3 hours of their time on a Saturday morning to clean up Green Street, and average collecting 48 bags of trash a year, along with several tires. James E. Turner, Code Enforcement Officer for Marion County nominated the group for their efforts.
Members pictured are: Scottie Collins, Carson Cribb, Abraham Dykes, Kayla Foxworth, Emily Graham, Ramyah Lane, Austin Larrimore, Jasmine Wiggins, and Morgan Wilson. Interact is sponsored by Maribeth Osborn, teacher at Marion High School.
