Andalusia High School students, parents, teachers and community members are asked to support “Pride Day” this Saturday beginning at 6 a.m.

AHS assistant principal and band director Benny Shellhouse said this year, the effort will focus on beautifying the school’s campus and inside facility.

“It’s that time of the year where we need to do those projects and ready for the first day of school,” Shellhouse said. “We’ll be working outside on lawn care and doing a deep cleaning on the inside.”

Volunteers should meet at the high school’s main parking lot. The following supplies will be needed: push mowers, weed eaters, pressure washers, ladders, hedge trimmers, rakes, brooms, gloves, Round-up and trailers to remove debris, as well as cleaning supplies, wash rags and towels.

At last year’s event, the high school’s exterior was painted, as well as other outdoor projects completed.
