The Knott Scholar Council enthusiastically welcomed more than 100 participants – including 46 scholars – to its annual Service Day on Saturday morning September 18, 2021. This year the activity was held on the campuses of St. Michael-St. Clement Catholic School and St. Michael the Archangel Church, both located adjacent to each other in northeast Baltimore City, and the 2020-2021 Knott Scholar Partner organization.
Knott Scholar Service Day 2021 was a tremendous beautification effort that lasted four hours and accomplished so much pride and reward. Many gardens were weeded and replanted with landscaping graciously donated by Green Fields Nursery, owned by Knott scholar alumni parents Jim and Kathleen McElroy. All the exterior steps, sidewalks, and curbs were swept and cleaned. Both the school’s principal Mr. Paul Kristoff and the church’s pastor, Friar Timothy Dore, OFM Conv., expressed their sincere gratitude for the work by our group! “Thank you. The families were amazing. Can we just be partners forever!!!,” Mr. Kristoff expressed the following week.
