Sarah Adamo, a senior at High School West, decided to give something back to the school community that is so special to her.

As part of her Girl Scout Gold Award project, Adamo built garden box planters for the outdoor space at Accompsett Middle School. The planters, which she painted blue and feature AMS displayed on the outside, are filled with different plantings to beautify the outdoor space used during recess and outdoor educational instruction.

Adamo has been a Girl Scout since kindergarten and has been working on her Gold Award project since last May. She choose AMS because of the personal connection she feels toward the school. “I remember all of the teachers and administrators who made my years here a great experience,” she said. “Now students can use this space to learn as part of the horticulture elective class as well.” Adamo also made garden boxes for the local nursing homes.
