The Courthouse in Quitman, Georgia is looking a little nicer for passers by with the help of some bright high school students.

These green-thumbed workers have been planting rose bushes and scrubbing sidewalks all week. Thursday they held a flower sale to raise funds for more community service projects.

Thursday was the last day of a week long project for Brooks County High School. All 25 students were nominated by their teachers.

"I felt really good. I felt like my school recognized me out of everybody and I felt like I'm doing good and I'm being rewarded," said Jasmine Arnold, Brooks Co. High School Senior.

Wiregrass Technical College sponsored the leadership camp and the kids have been spending their mornings doing fun activities at their main campus.

    Great effort for HS students. I don't think elementary students could properly plant rose bushes or scrub the sidewalks.

    Way to go, young people! Quitman is a beautiful little town and what you did goes a long way toward making it even prettier! Thank you that you care enough to contribute to society - adults appreciate it. Intelligent kids are smart enough to appreciate it too, notwithstanding comments from shel who hopefully will mature someday. Continue to do good things and it will come back to you. Thanks to each of you.

    Sounds like a project for elementary students, or prisoners

      Shel, these students participated in a program that gives back to the community. They enjoyed it. And guess what, it looks nice and we're proud of it. If you must be ignorant and negative please keep your comments to yourself. As for our new landscape, its something we all can enjoy, elementary students and prisoners and everyday passerbys of all ages.
