On October 25, 2014, the FCCLA, Future Career Community Leaders of America, and the Biology Club of Cuthbertson High School came together to impact the community in a positive way. Lead by Maya Schultz, a science teacher at Cuthbertson and Stefanie Carnathan, the foods teacher and supervisor of Cuthbertson’s FCCLA division, the clubs took part in the annual Adopt-A-Highway event on Waxhaw-Indian Trail Road.

Adopt-A-Highway is a program established in 1988, by the North Carolina Department of Transportation to aid in the fight against littering and initiate constant regulation and cleanup of North Carolina’s highways.

The Biology Club and FCCLA collected 20 bags of trash on a 2 mile stretch of the highway.

Shanaia Lewis, a senior at Cuthbertson and a member of FCCLA said, “It feels really nice to be a part of an event that impacts the community in such a valuable way."

The clubs urge you to support the Adopt-A-Highway program and continue the battle against environmental damage by taking part in similar events that impact your community positively.
