Rapid City High School students replace shelter destroyed by drunk driver

Xing Guard 11RAPID CITY, S.D.– There’s a grateful middle school crossing guard thanks to some high school students. Last year the crossing guard shed at East Middle School in Rapid City was hit and destroyed by a drunk driver. Oddly enough, the shed was recently donated by students at Rapid City High School. Upon hearing that the shed needed to be replaced students taking Geometry in Construction got to work.

Rapid City High School Student Brody Songstad says, “Being a part of this project was pretty great because we were contributing to the community and it felt like a really great source of teamwork among the people.”

The new shelter took students a little over a month to build and just under an hour to set in place.
