KMBC's Adopted Highway is Clean!

“We are overseers of God's creation, and we are supposed to take care of the environment around us,” said KMBC Student Council President Nick Errico about trash along the sides of Breathitt County roads.

On Saturday, October 10, eleven students (including Mr. Errico) and two faculty members participated in a KMBC Student Council-sponsored trash clean-up on a portion of HWY 541.Clean Up Pic 1

The volunteers spread out and covered plenty of ground, or perhaps uncovered plenty of ground. Two groups started at the Mt. Carmel campus and cleaned both sides of the highway stretch that leads back to the KMBC campus. Two other groups began their trek at HWY 205 and cleaned both sides of HWY 541 back to the KMBC campus. Over three hours of work resulted in two miles of temporarily trash-free highway.

Students, faculty, and staff intend to continue maintaining the cleanliness of the road by promoting avoidance of littering and involvement in post-litter clean-up. Cleaning this highway that KMBC has adopted served as a great reminder to the campus community of the importance of preserving God's world.
