THE EXTRA MILER: New Albany senior really shines



Fatima wishes to encourage readers, along with every student at NAHS to be a part of the Environmental Outreach group’s current project. The group is raising money ($5,500) for a bore hole (for water) to be built at an orphanage in Harare, Zimbabwe, where fruits and vegetables are very expensive and the ground is extremely dry.

The students want the children to be able to have the nutrients they need and also have an enriching activity — growing their own fruits and vegetables with the water from the bore hole. However, the Environmental Outreach club cannot do this alone. Everyone in the New Albany-Floyd County school system is encouraged to take part by becoming a member and donating to the cause.

Also, she implores our community to help the NAHS students make life better for a group of young children thousands of miles away. Readers, check out the website and make a donation or just become a member and show your support:
