Girl Scout troops 30105 and 30123 comprised of girls not only from Indianola, but from Greenville and Cleveland as well, partnered with Mic Magazine on litter prevention in an effort to continue to keep designated areas of the community clean through the Adopt-a-Highway program.
The girls adopted a section of roadway that starts at the Capps Center and stretches for four miles east on U.S. 82 on the outskirts of Indianola. According to Troop Leader Kavarica McCurry, “The girls find great joy in cleaning up because they know they are doing something great for their community.”
Troop Leader Shequite Johnson added, “It’s a great accomplishment for the girls to learn about being of service at an early age. We are looking forward to cleanup projects throughout the year and we will continue to remain visible doing service projects because that’s what it’s all about.” The troops’ overall goal is to Keep Indianola Beautiful.
