A high school student is working to make an area elementary school more accessible to all students.

As part of an Eagle Scout project, Paul Justice, a Greenwood High Junior decided to build a shelter on the preschool playground at Cumberland Trace Elementary.

"So that this tricycle track will have somewhere where the kids can go, kinda to imagine things and so that handicap kids can move around and have shelter on the playground as well", says Justice.

Children were also on hand at the playground on Saturday ready to test out the new shelter.

The Eagle Scout troop also took care of other areas of this playground such as getting rid of unwanted weeds.
