Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - Despite the rainy weather on Wednesday, students from the School of the Arts helped to beautify sections of the 18th Ward in Rochester.

About 100 high school seniors were scattered across the community to do good work.

Some did mini clean sweeps along the riverfront and throughout the 19th Ward. Others worked with Foodlink and visual artists created pop-up art displays.

"I would hope that especially it's work that they're trying to invest themselves in and they can't walk away with it," said Jack Latorre, who works as the drawing and painting teacher at the School of the Arts. "I hope they understand that they're doing it for someone else and really being a servant to community is more important than serving oneself."

The seniors were out doing this Wednesday while the underclassmen took their PSAT exams.
