University of Houston-Downtown Cleans Up the City

University of Houston Downtown Driessen Fellow La’Vonte Holt led a group of students to make the city of Houston a little better for everyone, especially the children who attend Booker T Washington High School. This part of Houston is plagued with piles of garbage and drug paraphernalia.

The cleanup of the street surrounding the school, which led to the removal of more than a dozen lawn bags of trash, took several hours of their Saturday but the reward of knowing that the children would be a little safer was worth it. As La’Vonte said, “The [area] was filled with things no child should be exposed to.”
