For the last five years, Fenton varsity baseball coach Shawn Lawrence has brought his baseball teams to Oakwood Cemetery to help clean the grounds. There usually are about 65 players. The varsity team has been helping at senior citizen residences and the cemetery. These young men and their coaches have tackled all projects with enthusiasm and hard work, and no complaints. Coach Lawrence and his staff teach more than baseball. They are training life lessons and community involvement that will last all their life. The Oakwood Cemetery Board has been pleased to be a part of these lessons and hope to continue this tradition. We have been truly blessed by these coaches and these fine young men. Fenton schools should be very proud.
