Story excerpt:


"A community hit hard by Hurricane Harvey is getting a boost this week from students who traveled from hours away.

This isn't your typical classroom assignment. High school students hammered tile, threw away debris and carried trash to the curb Monday.

After Harvey hit, the Hinkley High School students thought of a way to travel to the Houston area.

They spent the past few weeks raising money. In order to make the trip happen to help residents of Dickinson, the school raised more than $30,000."
