Most of the time people throw away their soda cans or cereal boxes, but what they don’t realize is those items can make a big difference if they are recycled.
SkillsUSA, one of many programs at Pensacola State College where students and teachers work together for a better workforce, is doing its part to make sure those items aren’t thrown away.
What started out as a service project for the program, collecting aluminum can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House and Box Tops for Education, has taken over the Warrington Campus.
Sonography students in SkillsUSA started collecting the items about eight months ago, and other programs like nursing and dental started collecting them, too.
Now, almost everyone on campus recycles them because there are labels on recycle bins throughout campus.
“SkillsUSA offers a unique program of work and one is community service. Anytime students work together for the good of others makes a SkillsUSA advisor proud,” said Jennifer Ponson, the region one advisor of SkillsUSA.
