I spent my Saturday morning with a group of volunteers, cleaning and spiffy-ing up the local high school from top to bottom, inside and out.

I was not surprised to see that the majority of the volunteers were teenagers.
*This is only half of the gym. It was full of hundreds of green-shirted do-gooders.

For 4 hours these volunteers scrubbed, scraped, wiped, weeded, planted, and polished the school.

The teens that I worked side by side with were using this service project as their 'day date' for that night's M.O.R.P. dance.

I have never seen such hard workers. They took their assignments very seriously- wanting the work that they did to make a difference.

**Nicole is wearing orange because she was a 'team leader' for the event.
For M.O.R.P. that night, they dressed up as neon clad super-heros. I thought that was very fitting of who they really are.

It has been such an honor to have met and had in my home at one time or another, several of those teens who showed up to volunteer. They are such good, strong willed young men and women who amaze me with their talents and their determination to make a difference in this world.

In my eyes they are true super-heros who are just on the verge of a new adventure as they prepare to graduate from high school next month. I can't wait to see what they do next!
