Building a bicycle.Mullins said she hopes this teamwork continues throughout the school year.“My leadership team and I, we thought, ‘hey we have a new faculty coming on board, we have a lot of new people coming to University Place,’ and we wanted them to understand that we’re one team,” Mullins said. “We work better together, we get more done, and as you can see they’re all wearing team shirts since together everybody achieves more.”The bikes the teams constructed will be donated to Alabama One Credit Union’s Operation Christmas.last_img read more
