WASHINGTON – On Saturday, August 23, for the eighth time under head coach Arlisa Williams, the Georgetown volleyball team took part in the D.C. Public Schools (DCPS) Beautification Day. The Hoyas spent Saturday at Johnson Middle School, preparing it for the upcoming school year.

“We have participated in DCPS Beautification for eight years now,” Williams said. “This is our second-straight year going to Johnson Middle School, and third year overall. Our players have an attachment to and affinity for the school. It is evident to them that their work there makes the school a better place and they are proud of the difference that they make.”


 

 

DCPS Beautification Day was established in 2005 as a citywide “spruce up” of all DC public school buildings in preparation for the first day of school. Beautification efforts included landscaping, trash pick-up, light painting, planting flowers and other external beautification efforts.

 

“It was a really cool experience because we were able to play a role in transforming a seemingly plain building into a friendly learning environment,” senior Alex Johnson (Tampa, Fla,/Plant) said. “The day was great because we all got to do something different. Some of us worked on cleaning up the outside of the building while others put up bulletin boards and other classroom decorations.”
