Educators Lead Blight Fight

Litter, piles of trash, graffiti, overgrown yards, weed-covered street tree wells, illegal street signs...  Beyond being unsightly, these are the things upon which larger scale blight and property decay is built.

Yet where some see ugliness, others see opportunity.  Three educators, Altoona’s Robin Dishong, Hollidaysburg’s Andrea Walter and Tyrone’s Cummins McNitt, turned these unpleasant circumstances into a teachable moment and an opportunity to provide a service to the community during the last few weeks of the school year.  Each organized and energized students in their high schools to clean-up and beautify places that were not so beautiful.
