The US Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville recently partnered with Okaw Valley High School. Students from Okaw Valley are giving back to the community by working at Lake Shelbyville with the Corps and performing projects that help the public, doing things such as maintenance, planting trees, and farming. Wes Wise, teacher at Okaw Valley High said this partnership will allow students to gain experience, and even set themselves up for future job opportunities. Wise said from the beginning of the partnership, both sides have been working together to support each other in the best ways possible.
Wise explained some of the things students do on their Corps Days to help both locally and environmentally.
Wise appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show live from our Shelbyville Studios.
