Comments like “the project caused the environment to look more alive and the people more happy” came pouring in when Eagle Construction students at Poinciana High School in Kissimmee, Fla., spruced up the school’s courtyard. In four weeks, they removed weeds, garbage and dead trees. They picked out and planted new trees and shrubbery and built borders for the gardens.
