ROSWELL, Ga. – Centennial High School seniors spent the day helping the community at more than 30 different sites around Roswell on Oct. 16. Over 400 students participated in Senior Service Day and contributed to the community in many ways. On this day, more than 1,200 service hours were completed by the Centennial seniors.
Students set up decorations at East Roswell Park, organized three understaffed public libraries, made over 80 meals for the families at Ronald McDonald House, tutored children and ran a career day at local elementary and middle schools and entertained residents of Ivey Ridge and Sunrise assisted living homes.
Although many students left the school to serve around Roswell, some students chose to stay at Centennial and help out the workers that serve the students every day. An appreciation lunch was put on for some of Centennial's hardest working employees including the custodians and cafeteria staff.
Senior Service Day is a Centennial tradition and the seniors have been giving back for more than a decade now. The Centennial class of 2014 aimed to "serve with class" as they provided service around the community.
