High school students are sharing information they collected from Winchester residents to city officials. It's all part of the Shenandoah University Summer High School Leadership by Design for Public Service and Citizenship.
More than a dozen students went to about 300 doors and asked residents what the City needed to do more of and what was being done well.
"She told us that she was actually pretty pleased with everything that was being done in Winchester, but there was another woman who said she would have liked there to be more stuff done in Downtown Winchester," said Warren County High School Senior Tyler Peterson.
"One of the great things about doing this survey is it emphasizes the importance of advocacy and actually getting into the place that you live," said SU Director of the Center for Public Service and Scholarship Karen Schultz. "It's important to actually meet people face to face to find out what their desires their hopes their dreams are and we were able to capture that."
This is the second time they've done the survey. In 2011, child programs were the largest perceived need. And this year, it was maintenance. High school students were chosen by their guidance counselors to participate in this program.
