CUMMING, Ga. — A group of students in the South Forsyth High School Mentor Me Kick It Up Club visited residents at Tara Plantation assisted living community.

During their visit at Tara Plantation, 440 Tribble Gap Road in Cumming, students played games and interacted with the residents.

Jonathan Sosa has participated in the Kick it Up Club at South Forsyth for two years.

"The club inspires us to be successful in life," Sosa said. "In addition to our community service projects, we hear successful people tell their stories of how they achieved success. It encourages us to decide what we want to do in life and work to succeed."

Following their activities with the residents, Stephen Deraney, Tara Plantation residence director, thanked the students and described the operation of his facility.

"This kind of community service project is important for both groups," Deraney said. "It helps our residents stay engaged, and it gives the students the opportunity to get involved in the community by helping others."
