An introduction to volunteerism

On hands and knees, scrubbing baseboards inside a Heartland Pet Connection examination room, Reid Schultz was having fun.

Schultz was one of more than 30 Doniphan-Trumbull High School sophomores helping to clean the pet shelter Friday afternoon.

"I don't know many people in our class who don't like dogs or cats," he said. "They were all pretty excited about being able to help."

The sophomores were there as part of a service learning project that is the culmination of a year's worth of Mentee Advisor Periods.

As part of the MAP program, students and teachers meet to talk about different curriculum. For sophomores, the emphasis is public service.
