PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - A group of eleventh graders from Central High School spent their free time in a productive way.
On Friday, they finished building a playground for students with special needs at Phenix City Elementary School.
When this project began, the elementary school only had one handicapped swing, which was broken.
Now, the swing is fixed and two new swings were installed along with other accessible playground equipment.
We had a chance to speak with one student who had a big part in this project.
"Even though these kids won't know that, you know, we were the ones that did it - the thought that, you know, years down the line they'll be enjoying themselves and having a good time because of our actions, it makes you feel good," said Adrian Rodriguez.
Mayor Eddie Lowe declared Friday as Blossoming Education Day in Phenix City. The official dedication of the playground wrapped up Friday morning.
