In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Clover Park High School students spent their day off giving back to the community.
March of Dreams
The students and community members met at Fort Steilacoom Park and walked around Waughop Lake. Students constructed a timeline around the trail depicting the life of Dr. King.
Following the walk, the crowd gathered to listen to Clover Park seniors Jessica Jackson and Jordan Dacres as they reflected on the impact Dr. King’s legacy has made in their lives. Kimi Rayburn from the College Success Foundation also spoke about the importance of looking back in order to look forward and her experiences with racism and gender discrimination during the late 60’s in Tacoma.
Clover Park‚Äôs ASB would like to thank everyone who participated as well as Safeway and Costco who donated snacks and water.
Community Service at the Park
Students came to Clover Park High School to serve in a variety of capacities including making inspirational posters to decorate the school; cleaning out and organizing classrooms; picking up litter near Woodbrook Middle School, Clover Park High School and Park Lodge Elementary School; and cleaning and organizing the trophy cases at the high school.
In total, more than 135 students participated in the day of service. Students would like to thank Mayor Doug Richardson and his wife Charlene for attending the events along with the staff and community members who participated in this great day.
