One of our most exciting projects is now underway, as 6th grade students from Higgins Middle School participate in "Stepping Stones to McComb's Railroad History." A wonderful project made possible by a grant from our longtime supportive corporate partner, Entergy! Twelve students were selected from compositions that were submitted.
Short phrases of history written by the students will be etched into stones that will surround our new children's playground. These stones will serve as railroad educational facts as well as a permanent historical reminder of the railroad's impact on our area for all who visit.
Once complete, a dedication ceremony will be held, and the students will be recognized for their contribution. We thank Higgins Middle School, the McComb School District and parents.
