Mac Underwood - Ashland High School
Mac Underwood from Ashland High School
Mac is an awesome kid, a gentle giant. He is currently working to expand the Ashland Community Garden to complete his Eagle Scout requirements. The Cutler Mill Farm donated an area of land that needed to be cleared, cultivated, sectioned, and fenced. He sought donations of materials from local businesses, but has had to fund some of the project himself. While most 17 year olds are sleeping in with "senioritist" Mac is working on the garden weekend mornings and then going to is job at the grocery store for the last shift. This is just one example of his giving back. This fall he came to help me set up my classroom and ended up moving desks in and of several other teacher's class rooms. He is a class act! Always willing to lend a hand, I am so proud of the young man he is becoming.
