On May 14, 2022, The Great American Cleanup was in full swing! Keep America Beautiful affiliate, Keep The Shoals Beautiful, and local trash celebrity, Steve Trash presented the Clean Campus Award to Waterloo High School and Waterloo Elementary School students in Waterloo, Alabama.

From teacher Courtney Putnam:

“One of my goals every year is to strengthen my student’s love for our community and instill the sense of ownership we all should have in keeping our campus and community clean. It’s one of my favorite projects and my students always dive in and go above and beyond! This year was no different and I am so happy they were recognized for their efforts! Thank you Keep the Shoals Beautiful and Steve Trash for a wonderful program and all of your efforts to educate and recognize students in the Shoals!”

Keep America Beautiful recognizes the hard work and dedication of all of our affiliates and volunteers. We are especially heartened when we see the next generation of environmentally conscious Litter Heroes jumping into action.

Wonderful work, students! Thank you!
