A lasting tribute

Students and teachers at Coosa Elementary transformed their 9/11 memorial to create a Veteran’s Memorial Garden outside of the school entrance.  Student poems were engraved on marble stones, and within that artistic display is a walking path and garden. Coosa Elementary hosted a rededication of the garden the day after Veteran's Day.  Those in attendance included Parris Island’s commanding general and the U.S. Marine Corps Band.   State Rep. Shannon Erickson donated a South Carolina flag that had flown over the state capitol building.
