Tuscola Students Construct Memorial Day Crosses

Tuscola High School students constructed 20 white wooden crosses for the Haywood Veterans Association’s Memorial Day display at several local cemeteries.

Students from Sherman Holt’s agricultural mechanics and agricultural production classes and Eric Sollie’s construction class worked together to complete the project.

“It’s important for us to show our respect and gratitude for all the men and women that have served our great country,” Holt said. “By participating in this project, students get to connect to this community and the heroes that have defended our country and freedom.”

This is the first year Tuscola students have participated in the project, but Holt and Sollie both agree they will continue to look for more ways to serve the community.
