Students talk with Joplin High grad in Ghana via Skype


A number of Joplin High School students got to learn about an environmental project in Ghana from a Joplin High School graduate.  The students talked with Garrett Shank on Tuesday through Skype.

Shank let the students know how they could get involved with the Ghana School Bag Initiative.  It's a program designed to teach Ghanaian's about environmental sustainability.  It involves making recycled school bag that are given to children in Ghana that also comes with environmental information.

"The reality of a Joplin grad going on to making such a big difference globally does motivate me," says Joplin High School student Kylie Davis.  "It is something you don't think you will do in high school.  This motivates students thinking they can be a part of it."

Shank has been working on the project in Ghana since the beginning of the year.
