Schuyler sports complete a winter service project every year. The coaches of wrestling, girls basketball, and boys basketball were interviewed to share what the service projects were and what the benefits were. The three teams completed a service project, but each one was different

Head Coach Lyndon Beebe and the boys basketball team completed their service project in October. The service project was to lay sod at the Habitat for Humanity project house. Habitat for Humanity is an international nonprofit that builds affordable housing for low-income families. The organization obtains assistance on their building projects from volunteers and future homeowners. Coach Beebe thinks that “his team gained a sense of what it means to help others”.

The Girls Basketball Head Coach Daniel Wolken had the team deliver Christmas cards to the people who are in the Schuyler Care and Rehabilitation Center. The cards were hand delivered to them the last day of school before winter break. Coach Wolken  said that “it is important to be a part of the lives of those who they know who are elderly”.

Head Coach Jeremy Hlavac and the wrestling team did a service project the first weekend of November. For the service project the wrestling team went to the Schuyler Golf Course and cleaned up tree branches and raked leaves. Due to weather they were only able to work for a few hours. Hlavac thinks that doing a service project “shows that they want to give back to the community for all the support”.
