Rochester High School juniors gathered Tuesday around the Fulton County Courthouse to raise awareness for people struggling with homelessness – both locally and around the state.

Three sets of juniors in a combined American Studies course taught by language arts teacher Hope Showley and history teacher Jesse Atkinson were bused over from the school to host a Hooverville reenactment on the courthouse lawn.
