As a part of the GREAT (Gang Resistance Education and Training) program, each class must do a class project.
According to Cpl. Mike Shaver, the Hinesville Police Department’s resource officer at Lewis Frasier Middle School, the project must be something that either “could or would” help make their school or community a better place, a GREAT place.
During the past semester, students at the school organized a drive to collect for those who seek help at local charities.
“It is what they want to do as a class, they can either do individual projects (essays, PowerPoint presentations etc.) or several people can do something for the entire class. These students decided to collect clothes, toys and the like for other people, be they homeless, or just less fortunate,” Shaver said.
It was organized primary by three sixth-graders, Regina Thompson, Maria Eggers and Sabrina Cortez.
