Arnold High School Hosts The Great American High School Clean Up

News

It was all hands on deck at Arnold High school Saturday for the first-ever Great American High School Cleanup.

More than 200 students, staff and community volunteers spent the morning beautifying the Arnold High School campus. Student clubs were tasked with different projects like planting trees, painting murals, picking up trash and more. Volunteers created a remembrance garden where students plant trees and flowers to remember those who have passed away in the Marlin family. The students got free T-shirts and lunch along with door prizes. Organizers said beautifying the campus is therapeutic for students. 

“Whenever they come on campus they are greeted with positive energy and whenever they are leaving that’s the last thing they see they are taking that positive energy back out into the environment and our community,” said AP Environmental Science teacher Rachel Branlett. 

The Panama City Beach Rotary Club, Keep Panama City Beach Beautiful, 850 Trees and other organizations donated their time and money toward the school’s efforts.
