In cooperation with the Steelville Star Stream Team and Yadkin Creek Watershed Coalition, several members of the Steelville High School Class of 2019 gathered last Friday morning to clean up the Yadkin Creek prior to Saturday’s annual duck race to benefit Project Graduation. The group picked up trash from Hoppe Spring Park to the Community Park and removed enough trash to fill a dumpster. Several unique items were pulled from the creek, including a baby stroller, a shopping basket, and the frame from a sleeper sofa.
Ten students from the Steelville High School Class of 2019 will go into the military after graduation. Two of those students are going to West Point, and they were recognized at a special assembly held at the high school on Friday, April 12. United States Congressman Jason Smith spoke at the gathering.
