Freshman class out in force today

An estimated 350 Anderson County High School freshman put down their pencils for a few hours this morning to give back to their community.

Students took part in a community-wide outreach program to help clean tombstones at Lawrenceburg Cemetery, work in the city and county parks, the Lawrenceburg police station, Open Hands Food Pantry and other locations.

Lawrenceburg resident LouKetta Woods said she was cleaning the grave of her late husband Michael when she saw a school bus pull in.
