The inside of classrooms isn't the only part of the school campus that gets spruced up before students arrive. While teachers work inside others are focused on the outside. That was the case Saturday at the Margaret K. Lewis School, where the eagles were cleaning their nest.
Volunteers from Tyndall Air Force Base gave up part of their weekend, to do some landscaping, grass cutting, and weed trimming. Bay District Schools often depend on volunteers to help get schools in tip top shape, before students arrive. "I can't place a value and the significant on the dollar amount that we would have to pay each individual I can't say enough about Tyndall Air Force Base and the volunteers but I can certainly say that Tyndall Air Force Base has step to the plate every time we ask them to". Says Doctor Haley from Bay County School Board. Doctor Haley went on to say "Tyndall has provided as many as eighty volunteers to help with back-to-school efforts".
