"Pick-up" School Program
Picky Pete the Pelican
Started in Corpus Christi in 2006 this is an ongoing project which has been successfully introduced to the entire CCISD system. By teaching children, beginning in the elementary grades, that litter is everyone’s responsibility, Responsibility begins where they live and go to school.
William R. Durrill made a trip to Austin in 2010 and presented this program at the State level for consideration of introducing the program into all the Texas Public Schools. The presentation was received warmly and graciously and is being considered for implementation across the state.
