Senior Journey: Helping bring light to NOLA

On Monday, the group toured the Lower 9th Ward to learn more about the region's rebuilding efforts ten years after Hurricane Katrina. Students weren't just there as tourists though. With a focus on engagement through service, the seniors undertook a special project.
JCHS Seniors arrived safely in New Orleans in Sunday night.

On Monday, the group toured the Lower 9th Ward to learn more about the region's rebuilding efforts ten years after Hurricane Katrina. Students weren't just there as tourists though. With a focus on engagement through service, the seniors undertook a special project.

Roni Ben-David reports, "We went to the homes of New Orleans residents to swap out regular lightbulbs for CFL's. This change helps them save money and save energy."

Working with  Green Light New Orleans, seniors switched out almost 100 bulbs!
