Celebrating 10 Years of Service with Adopt-A-Highway Program
highway cleanup

This year Greene Early College celebrates a ten-year contractual agreement with NC Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway Program. To celebrate the commitment, over 40 very willing students combed the shoulders and ditches on Middle School Road on Friday September 23 to collect litter. This was only the first of four scheduled yearly cleanups. The recent cleanup marked the 41st cleanup, covering 61.5 miles over the ten-year period. The Department of Transportation recently recognized GEC’s participation in this state-wide initiative by presenting the school with a plaque and 10-year commemorative stars to attach to the official road sign. Interest in this project began in response to the tornado on April 16, 2011 which completely destroyed the county’s only middle school. GEC English teacher, Natasha Martin, applied in September 2012 to DOT for the 1.2 mile road to be adopted by GEC. Although, a short stretch of road, it is very historically significant to Greene County. In addition, when schools are in session, more than 1200 students travel the stretch of road to either the Middle School or the Intermediate School on a daily basis.

Thank you, GEC and Mrs. Martin, for your untiring commitment to helping keep Greene County clean.
