Garvey School Gets A Touch Up From Community
The school's only Taylor Street campus was hit hard after Hurricane Irene swooped through the East Coast in late August leaving significant damage to the eight year old private school.
The school's damage was documented on this blog just a month ago. In a previous interview, the school's principal, Baye Kemit, said he was thankful for the help, but said more work is needed.
After participating in the community paint party myself, I have to say it was a beautiful sight to see as members of the community stopped by to pick up a brush, roll up their sleeves and go to work. Members of the Garvey School staff also took part in the community paint party that left the facility looking anew but only halfway painted.
More work needs to be done.
