What is REFRESH?


Students at Whitewright High School established REFRESH to "refresh" our town and provide more amenities to our community.  It is a student-led project to repurpose existing properties and renew the town.


Projects under consideration include:

  • Roller rink
  • Festivals (music, movies, street dances, children's events)
  • Coffee shop/arcade
  • Expand children's park
  • Swimming pool
  • Improve sidewalks
