Heritage University hosts private Seattle school students for community projects
TOPPENISH, Wash.--Severalstudents from a private school in Seattle now have an idea of how people work and live in the lower valley.
Tenth graders from the Northwest School are taking part in service projects aimed at showing how different communities are across the mountains.
Heritage University is hosting the students, where on Thursday they worked on the campus corn fields.
Northwest students appreciate the experience and hope to share it with their own community back home.
"It's something so different to my life and it's not something I've ever experienced so hopefully I can come back here at some point and I hope that us as a community can bring this back to our greater northwest community and talk about it," said Northwest School sophomore Clara Madenwald.
The students also helped people who are studying to be U.S. citizens and shadowed Heritage students who are studying fisheries.
