Terry L. Cannon South End Park

Community Service Week Project

The Mission of the Project

Over four hundred students including Keyser High School, Frankfort High School, and adults enrolled in the various areas of the Programs of Study at the Mineral County Technical Center will be supervised by their instructors and community members in the revitalization of the South End Park Complex. The project will also include a number of curriculum related projects during Terry L Cannon Community Service Week. The total project will be done in memory and honor of Mr. Terry Cannon, past vocational director and former member of the Stewardship Collaboration. Students will maintain and plant the wildflower bed, paint equipment, and construct a community child's tree house, collect items for shelters, organize a bloodmobile and hold a project completion celebration. This project will be the major thrust of Mineral County's Terry Cannon Community Service Week, a recognized annual event planned by members of the technical centers DECA, FFA, FBLA, HOSA, and VICA student organizations. Students enrolled in the classes will utilize their applied academic skills such as welding, landscaping, building construction, marketing, nursing,etc.... in completing the project.

This park is a focal point of the community and is utilized by several civic oranizations. A cooperative arrangement has been formalized between the City of Keyser and the Technical Center. Through completion of this project and community service week:
  1. Community Service will be focal point of class curriculum
  2. Students will work together with city government and civic organization stakeholders to participate in the stewardship of human and natural resources.
  3. The social and economic vitality of the community will be enhanced.
