Keep DeSoto Beautiful Board Seeks Student Board Members

DeSoto High School Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to apply and earn Community Service Hours

The Keep DeSoto Beautiful Board is accepting applications from DeSoto High School students interested in helping the KDB Board with its mission: To promote interest and pride in improving the environment of the city by programs of litter control, beautification, recycling, awareness and respect and community involvement.

The Board members believe strongly that our young adults are a valuable resource in terms of energy and creativity and can provide an important link to children and youth by educating and making their peers aware. For that reason, the KDB Board will select three young students to serve a one-year term of office as full voting members of the Board. If a student serves as a Junior, he or she is eligible for re-appointment during their senior year. Applicants must support and participate in as many KDB programs or activities as possible. Such activities may include community trash pick-ups, recycling programs, educational efforts such as elementary school presentations to teach our youngest citizens about recycling. One of the many benefits of serving on this Board is that each student has an opportunity to earn those all important Community Service hours needed on every college application.

Applicants must provide at least one letter of reference from a principal or a faculty or staff member. Student board members are accepted in September and serve throughout the school year.

Completed applications must be mailed by August 1 to:

DeSoto, TX 75115
