Working with the St. Charles Sheriff’s Office and the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, Destrehan High School student Lauren Vidrine’s senior project made quite an impact and attracted 35 volunteers to pick up trash and debris along St. Rose Avenue last month.

Vidrine’s volunteers ranged from parish students and teachers to residents like St. Rose’s Michell Huhner who says that the area has always needed a little TLC.

“I’ve been living here since 1987 and always wanted to clean up some of this trash,” said Huhner. “But my husband would not let me knowing how dangerous it is with the traffic.”

Vidrine says that she was excited that volunteers were able to collect over 40 bags of trash and other loose debris.

“I am glad to see so many kids volunteer,” said Lauren. “I hope that they share what they did with friends.”

“Maybe this will raise awareness so others will stop littering our roadways.”
