Getting youths involved in boat-building is not an easy task. Factor in that the Edisto Island youths involved in this project come from a Title One school, then this feat is even more impressive. Of course,  a lot of hard work comes into play, starting with Kit Fox who is a Student Support Specialist at Baptist Hill Middle School. The boat-building project is part of the Communities in Schools program and had a great deal of support from Edisto's Learning Through Loggerheads organization.
