Como-Pickton Students Clean Up After Storm

Some students from Como-Pickton ISD in Hopkins County volunteered their time cleaning up where the storm hit hard. They picked up insulation, tin, and wood that was blown off the Rickey and Suzy Chicken Farm in Pine Forest. The students say it's their community spirit that led them to spend their day off helping ther neighbors.

"This is like one of my best friends' farm," Shannon Russel, a senior at Como-Pickton High School, said. "And I was here with them last night. And she was crying, and I was crying. So I decided to come back today."

Teachers from Como-Pickton and other community members also got their hands dirty to help clean up.
