HAGERSTOWN -- Williamsport High School junior Emily Beach is the type of student who does more than just meet her requirements.
Tim Sowell, unit director at the Elgin Station Boys & Girls Club, remembers when the girl went to the center looking to fulfill her high school requirement of 15 service-learning hours.
She put in the required volunteer hours, helping run programs at the club, and has now accumulated about 60 hours, Sowell said.
"She just kept on coming," Sowell said. "And she's dependable for a volunteer, which is not normal."
Student-service learning is a method of practical education that links academic learning with student service that benefits the community, according to the Washington County Public Schools Web site.
