FAYETTEVILLE, WV (WOAY) – Two retired Fayetteville High School teachers dedicate their free time to giving back to the community.
For over a decade, Terry Sizemore has spent his retirement volunteering in both a local food pantry and on the streets picking up litter throughout the town.
“I started 12 years ago when I retired for exercise and something to do,” said Sizemore. “I like to see my community and my state look nice and clean.”
Four years ago, another former teacher joined the effort.
“Several members of the council, myself and my family, the mayor, we just picked different areas of the town and did a litter pick up,” said town superintendent Matt Diederich. “It’s wonderful to have individuals that care and take it on themselves to do this on their own time and to take pride in their community. I just really appreciate them.”
You can get involved in the next clean-up by contacting Town Hall and asking to be put in touch with Terry Sizemore.
