Local youth performs service in Tonga

Victoria Platt, a senior at Ashdown High School, recently returned from two weeks in Tonga for a service trip called “Humanitarian Experience for Youth” or HEFY. The trip, paid for by her parents and money she earned, included cleaning up a playground, building schoolroom benches, laying a concrete foundation for an awning, and painting windowsills for a Tongan elementary school.
