Fort Mackenzie student Mike Jimenez works on a bench at Kendrick Park that will be installed in the new South Park area in Sheridan.
Teacher Gib Ostheimer said that he wanted his students to be involved in a community service project that was "more than just picking up trash". Students will build 16 benches. They will be involved with the South Park project until it is complete, and will use the area for teaching to elementary students after completion.
The South Park area will undergo stream restoration this fall, along with some pathway construction.
