On September 16, 2023, our ZHS JROTC, STUCO, ZHS NHS, ZMS NHS students participated in the National Clean-Up Day, a global movement that is held every year in September. Students worked in groups and picked up trash along Hwy 16. This event helped promote student understanding of life skills such as personal responsibility. We take pride in our environment and gained valuable experience caring for our community. Thank you to sponsors, parents, ZCISD Police Department & Zapata County Sheriff’s Office for your presence. It is greatly appreciated. Together we make a difference! Zapata Hawk Pride!
