Mrs. Charmaine Corrie and Freshman Bulldog Scholars served 200 at the St. Marks Soup Kitchen
FACS Teacher Mrs. Corrie believes that it’s always important to give back to the community, and she strives to do just that by volunteering with a few students at least two times a school year.
“It’s important for kids to understand that there are a lot of people out there who are less fortunate than they are,” Mrs. Corrie said. “I think once they go out and have that experience, it gives them so much appreciation.”
Freshman Brooklyn Ketzner took the opportunity to help and ran with it.
“I just thought it was the right thing to do,” Ketzner said. “I wanted to do something for my community because I’d never really done that before.”
Students discovered how much they have to be thankful for just in time for Thanksgiving.
“Volunteering at the soup kitchen and cooking chili for those in need made me feel so much more appreciative for all that I have,” Ketzner said.
Mrs. Corrie encouraged her Bulldog Scholars to join her so they could start off their high school careers on a positive note.
“[My favorite part was] watching students sacrifice their Saturdays,” Mrs. Corrie said. “We always have a great time.”
