Cars stood gleaming and clean after students in Introduction to Human Services washed the teachers’ cars Oct. 8. This service project was overseen by teacher Nancy Julius.

“My class did this as a service learning project in our leadership unit,” Ms. Julius said.

Students in this class completed a three-day car wash for the teachers. Junior Romi Huggins said that she thought the teachers were thankful for showing them some appreciation for all the hard work and countless hours they put in for students’ educations.

The class had 11 teachers sign up for the car wash, according to freshman Lacey Pauly.

“We did our best,” she said. “It was hard with limited resources.”

Students used only soap, water, sponges and a hose to wash the cars. Pauly said a power washer would have been helpful, since they washed many cars with little help.

“It was challenging with only five people, but we got it done,” Huggins said.

The car wash started Oct. 8 and will conclude when the weather cooperates.

As a service project for Introduction to Human Services, students washed teachers’ cars during eighth hour just outside the art room. “We had some communication problems at first, but we learned to work together and get things done,” Huggins said.
