Chatham News + Record documented a recent community service project involving Communities In Schools of Chatham County and community partners.
By the end of the day’s cleanup, volunteers had muddied their clothes, gotten twigs in their hair, and even scraped themselves fighting through the thick trees around the creek. But to them, it was all worth it for an act of environmental stewardship in their town.

“I want these kids to think about engineering as an option,” said Burney Waring, president of Innovate Chatham, a nonprofit aimed at improving accessibility to technology for Chatham residents. “I want them to figure out what works, what doesn’t and the reasons behind it. Get them thinking like an engineer.”
