   Students at the Gateway Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) High School will find some upgrades when they arrive for classes Monday morning. The St. Louis magnet school was the beneficiary of a community service project that capped off the sixth annual Clinton Global Inititative University.  Former President Bill Clinton and his daughter Chelsea led more than 700 volunteers in giving the school a makeover inside and out. 

   President Clinton carried his message to commit to action to St. Louis challenging students to find solutions to issues regarding human rights, public health, the environment, poverty, and education. Speaking at Gateway STEM high school, Clinton urged Americans to focus on science, technology, engineering and math.

   "We need to produce, over the next decade, one million people trained in the STEM areas just to maintain our current position, never mind to recover the rate of economic growth and prosperity that the country needs," Clinton said.

   Volunteers spent the day Sunday painting, carpeting, weeding and planting gardens. 

   Gateway Principal Beth Bender says the improvements included the installation of over 80 solar panels as well as a place for students to grow vegitables.

   "The Washington University school of architecture and landscape design has designed these beautiful and very functional raised bed gardens so we can do some urban farming here in the city and our students can learn about that," Bender said.

   Bender says Clinton's project will have a big impact on her school.
