BHS Students Clean Up Clinton Street

BHS Students Clean Up Clinton Street
Posted on 05/24/2018
Dozens of Binghamton High School students took a day out of class to help clean up Clinton Street on Wednesday.
The juniors and seniors walked the street with garbage bags and gloves, picking up trash from sidewalks and roads.
Some students even walked into the businesses on Clinton Street to meet the owners to get ideas about their future careers.
“With all of these students, they live right here in the City. They were born here, they grew up here, they live here, so that positive impact is very important.”
Binghamton City Council member, Giovanni Scaringi, invited the students to the event. It began in 2016, but this is the first year that students are involved.
“We thought this would be a great mentoring opportunity to really get the students from Binghamton High School out into the community, to actually have them talk to small business owners.”
BHS senior, Noah Farrelly, is excited to get out into the community to see how the shops he sees every day are running from the inside.
“I’ve taken the business pathway at Binghamton High School so we’ve learned about a lot of the different methods, and it’ll just be interesting to see what they’ve applied versus what we’ve learned and how they’ve applied that to their business.”
The students walked and cleaned Clinton Street from the Boys and Girls Club down to the Mirabito, working to make their community a better, cleaner place to live.
“Especially since we’re graduating, we’re gonna be part of the community like anybody else so it’s just good to build connections and just talk to people and help make Binghamton a better place.” Watch the story on WICZ.
