KINGMAN – Youth (and some adult) volunteers took time out of their weekend recently to help clean up Kingman.

Kingman and Kingman Academy high school students, as well as a few other volunteers, cleaned up large sections of Stockton Hill Road Saturday.

This included members of Kingman Youth Coalition Beating Up Teen Tobacco and the Kingman Area Meth Coalition.

They are proud of Kingman and hoped to make it look nice and “represent the way we feel about it.”
