Students learn outside the classroom
The on-going restoration project of the historic Spring Hill Cemetery in Hernando reached new heights recently as a 20-foot-tall sign was erected, marking the entrance to the cemetery. The sign was designed by Northwest Mississippi Community College alumnus Brandon Parker of Sarah and built by students in the Welding and Cutting Program at Northwest.
The sign project started in the fall of 2009 with a contest sponsored by Community Bank. Parker earned a $200 prize for his winning design.
“My design contains trees that are very significant to the area. The oak tree is a much respected tree by the Chickasaw Indians that once inhabited this area and is still very important to the inhabitants today,” said Parker.
