Dozens of Capital High students use time off to volunteer at elementary school

West Virginia

Dozens of Capital High School students are using their time off from school to give back.  

School still is not in session for Capital students due to an ongoing mold issue, but that isn’t stopping them from reporting to another school, Ruffner Elementary. 

Principal Henry Nearman invited Capital’s students to volunteer at Ruffner during the time that it takes Capital to remediate the mold issue.  A number of students took Nearman up on that invitation.

About 15 students volunteered at Ruffner of Wednesday.  That total doubled on Thursday.  

“Teachers that are here, they supported us, the kids that go to Capital.  So, it’s really nice to give back when we have the chance,” said Capital student, Callie Chambers.

Riley Otey, another volunteer said, “I like to give back as much as I can.  So anyone who needs help, I’ll try to help them.”

Teachers sang the volunteer student’s praises on Thursday while our crew was there.

Capital students will be welcome to volunteer Friday, too.
