Members of the Summit High School Band are beginning the New Year with a service project to improve our community.
A team of band members met at 10:00 a.m. on January 28 to launch the Summit High School Band’s roadside cleanup project along Highway 157 (Cooper Street) from Highway 287 northbound to Harris Road.
Last semester, the Summit High School Band applied for and received official approval to join the Texas Department of Transportation’s Adopt-a-Highway program. The effort is led by junior Connor Neugent who is the vice president of community service for the Summit Band Council.
There are nearly 3,800 volunteer groups associated with Texas’ Adopt-a-Highway program. Volunteers are required to perform four pickups a year to stay active in the program.
