Bright green paint was starting to show up everywhere as AmeriCorps Service Members, Ennis Mayor Becky Vujovich, parents, staff and even students of Ennis Community Children’s School (ECCS), spent a few hours on Monday doing much-needed painting at the school.Vujovich, along with 36 other mayors in Montana, took the time to recognize the service of AmeriCorps members working in our communities. This statewide honor was part of the 2nd annual Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service.
“Ennis is a community which is incredibly giving in terms of volunteer hours” Vujovich said, “and these AmeriCorps service members model that for all of us. We are lucky to have them here working with our students, learning about clean water, conservation, growing food, nutrition and agriculture.”
According to Sunni Heikes-Knapton, supervisor of Big Sky Watershed Corps Member Ethan Kunard, “This service project was a great fit. ECCS had a need, and four local AmeriCorps members had the skills and the time. Becky’s words were so meaningful, and it was nice to hear that encouragement for the work the members are doing.”
