ON CAMPUS: Teens spring into action

Teens are looking toward summer. Johansen seniors use sunny Saturday to serve community two ways.

Spring is in the air at area high schools.

Seniors are daydreaming.

Juniors are plotting.

Sophomores are looking with dismay at what they signed up to take next year.

Freshman are wondering just how bad finals will be.

Events for fun and profit fill the calendars. Sports, fruit trees and sunshine are revving up for summer.

At Johansen High’s Education-Human Development Academy, seniors are planning a double-service event for Saturday, May 4. From 9 a.m. to noon at the campus more than 50 students will be teaching kids 5- to 12-year-olds the basics of basektball, soccer, baseball, tennis and football.

That’s fun for kids, good for the community and also a fund-raiser for a good cause. The $20 fee ($15 for those signing up in advance) goes to Without Permission, a nonprofit devoted to fighting human trafficking.

The kids will be graded on how well they planned and how hard they worked to make the day happened. It’s their action step into making the world a better place, required of all academy students.
