Lyndon B. Johnson has kicked off its quarterly “Adopt A Highway” project for this year.

“We have been a part of this grassroots project since 1996,” said Marvin Ramsey, liaison specialist. “I’ve been really impressed with the responsibility that our students have taken with the highway clean up. They have gone above and beyond what is expected of them. Our neighbors have even stopped along the road at times to give a smile and a cheerful wave or to congratulate our students on taking the initiative to keep the roads clean.”
