GUADALUPE, Calif. --If you were in Guadalupe today you might've noticed some changes.
A group of 32 Allan Hancock students spent hours painting red curbs, pulling weeds, and blowing dirt off the gutters. It's part of a beautification project through the SkillsUSA program.
The beautification efforts were done along Guadalupe Street, at the city's downtown core.
“It's always a good idea to give back to the community 'cause even though I didn't grow up here, there's a lot of pride here in Guadalupe," said Hancock College student, Isaiah Urbano. "It feels good, and you get a little bit of a work out, so it's always good.”
The community service project was part of a competition through SkillsUSA.
SkillsUSA is a national organization created to teach students the technical skills required for employment.
The students will present this project at a regional competition in Bakersfield on February 22nd.
