Kirby Gregory, pottery instructor, has worked with the students for the past 3 months to create the collection.  The display will also include over 10 mixed media pieces created using recycled materials presented in new and interesting ways. Karyl Gavigan, art instructor, has been leading the students in a series of activities that always include some aspect of using recycled objects as part of their projects.

The City of Apalachicola supports two 21st CCLC after school programs through Project Impact.  They are located in Apalachicola at the City's Municipal Complex and the Apalachicola Bay Charter School.  After school services are provided free of charge and include homework help, targeted tutoring, educational enhancement, recreational activities, and field trips throughout the academic year with a full-time program in the summer weeks. The program is funded by a grant from the Florida Department of Education.
