Beta Club Service Project Beautifies Allatoona Creek Park

Beta Club Service Project Beautifies Allatoona Creek Park

 

On Saturday, April 17, approximately 25 students from the MPCS Beta Club joined other local volunteers in a community service project benefitting Allatoona Creek Park.

For four hours, those present worked together, not as individual members of Beta Club but as contributing members of the community, to create and renovate mountain bike trails for communal use.
At the project's conclusion, all volunteers gathered for lunch, when the lead park volunteer highlighted exceptional students for the hard work he saw them doing. For MPCS student and Beta Club President Zachary Fors, this was more than just an MPCS service event; it was a community event in the fullest. "It was a glimmer of everything I wanted to do as President of Beta," he shares. "[We were] truly creating a community-driven organization."

Zachary continued, "This was one of the most successful events I have ever been a part of, and it was just a powerful thing to see." Witnessing MPCS students working alongside members of the community-at-large to accomplish a task for the greater good inspired those present at the service event. "It is hard to explain, but it was a powerful effort," said Zachary. "The school really stepped up, and people saw what it means to be servant-leaders at MPCS."

Head of High School and Assistant Head of School Mrs. Tawanna Rusk says Zachary is "a rare and special gift to the world," and that he is "a light [who finds] every possible way to serve others!"

The entire MPCS middle and high school community eagerly anticipates continuing its commitment to community service with the school's annual Family Serve Day this Friday, April 23.
