CAPAC — Instead of books and papers, 24 high schoolers found themselves elbow-deep in bushes, dirt and paint.
Members of the National Honor Society held their first 'Not So Extreme Home Makeover' last Wednesday, April 23. Under the direction of advisor Lorraine Amstutz, the students helped Neeper St. resident Isabella Steaban spruce up her home and yard in time for spring.
Amstutz said the teens came up with the idea themselves, modeling it after similar 'Paint the Town' campaigns.
"These kids are very responsible and take initiative," Amstutz said.
