Almost 700 McPherson High School students are doing service projects at 42 separate sites today as part of the school's annual Big Event. Diane Marshall with McPherson High School explained how the Big Event fits into USD 418's Citizenship, College and Career readiness plan.
Marshall said, "The goal for us is to have the kids give back to our community. The town of McPherson supports our high school in so many different ways, and this is a way, for one day, that they go back out and say, 'Thank you. What can I do for you?'"
This is the fifth year for the Big Event in McPherson.
