Springfield – The Illinois Senate recently honored students taking part in programs to build and install bluebird houses throughout their communities, thanks to legislation filed by State Sen. Jason Barickman’s (R-Bloomington).
“It’s always impressive when young people take on the task of improving their own local communities,” said Barickman. “We need to recognize and encourage these future leaders and their hard work.”
Students from Pontiac Township High School, Tri-Point High School, Prairie Grade School, Prairie Central High School, and Heartland Community College have been working to build and install bluebird homes throughout several communities.
Senate Resolution 427 honored the work of these students by recognizing May 4th as Bluebird Project Day in the state of Illinois.
Students from Pontiac Township High School visited Senator Barickman at the Capitol on May 4th, and were recognized in the Senate chambers. The group was also honored by Governor Bruce Rauner.
“I’m very proud of the hard work and commitment these students have shown,” said Barickman. “We are lucky to have great programs like this in our communities.”
