Metro High School Seniors Help Plant at Habitat for Humanity Home

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY -- A group of metro students put down their pencils and picked up shovels Tuesday.

Sixty Centennial High School seniors are a part of the OKC Elevators- Powered by Coca-Cola. They spent the day landscaping a new Habitat for Humanity home, including carrying dirt, planting and watering flowers.

Many of the students live near the neighborhood near N.E. 84th Street and said they're excited to help out their own community.

"Our students are really shining in a way I've never seen before and it gives them an opportunity to see what it feels like to give to someone outside of yourself," said Deirdra Roberts, a sponsor for the project.

OKC Elevators is a program designed to help students elevate their skills in the classroom, at home and in extracurricular activities.
