Local St.Edmund's Students Assist In Post Katrina Clean-Up
Foley and Kennedy were presented with an honorary plaque along with fellow classmates Jared Joseph, Justin Komitor, Brian Markowitz and Joseph Roefin, all juniors and seniors at the high school, for the help they gave in rebuilding the Gulf Coast.
The students arrived at Camp Hope on Saturday, October 7, and under the guidance of their high school teacher, Mr. Fama, attended orientation classes and were assigned duties for their week's stay. Camp Hope is a school that has been converted into a housing unit for volunteers in the recovery efforts. The students joined with New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity in the clean-up of the devastated region.
