WINNSBORO — Ernest Manning’s class at the Fairfield Career and Technology Center participated in a clean-up day on the campus to pick up and bag 40 pounds litter for disposal.
The 21 students from Manning’s National Future Farmers of America partnered with the Fairfield Memorial Hospital Foundation in the clean-up day as part the PalmettoPride Tree grant requirements for trees donated to the hospital.
“The students took pride in cleaning up the grounds of the new Center,” he said. “Collecting and bagging the discarded litter made them more aware that litter trashes everyone.”
Manning’s horticultural class planted trees around the community walking path located on the hospital grounds last fall.
“We appreciate our ongoing partnership with the FCTC,” said Dawn Catalano, executive director of the FMH Foundation. “The students are learning job skills and community responsibility. We all benefit from their participation to enhance our community.”
