Scholars at Woodward Career Technical High School helped beautify their community by engaging in a restoration project at nearby Roselawn Park. Created through a partnership with the Roselawn Community Urban Rebuilding Corporation, the project gave students the opportunity to give back to their community in a way that leveraged classroom learning in a real-world experience.
While some of the young adults painted and repaired benches, others engaged in minor landscaping projects throughout the park. Woodward’s construction department oversaw the program. Mr. West Davis, who spearheaded the project, said that this location is a special place for his pupils.
“Roselawn Park is located right within our community; our students walk past it every day on their way to school,” said Davis. “They can take pride in their own community and can proudly say that this was something they’ve done.”
This project was just one of the many ways Woodward students give back. In the coming days, they will be volunteering at the Cincinnati ToolBank in Bond Hill.
