On April 26, Trigg County High School will hold the second Trigg County Day of Service at the high school gym.

Senior Alex Jenkins organized the first event last year as a member of the Kentucky Child Now youth council. Members of the council had pledged to start community service projects in their communities for the National and Global Youth Service Day. Jenkins called and wrote letters to area businesses asking for donations and recruited dozens of students to help with the event. In the morning, young children arrived to play games and watch several sketches from the high school’s drama club about bullying, cheating and stereotypes. In the afternoon, students and faculty took part in an “American Idol” parody called “Trigg Idol.” The event raised $1,105.23, which was donated to Relay for Life. Jenkins said at a recent Cadiz City Council meeting that the money would be donated to Relay again this year.

Jenkins could not be reached about this year’s plans by press time. The event will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
