Pamela Jones Adams, site coordinator for B.R.I.D.G.E. at CHS, and Violette Denney, from the Veterans Memorial Park Committee, stand beside the POW/MIA Wall of Honor.
Over 40 students and several teachers from the B.R.I.D.G.E. at Carrollton High School visited the Veterans Park for the first time to learn about the memorial and get a new appreciation of their freedom. The Site Coordinator Pamela Adams made the arrangements for two buses filled with ninth and tenth graders, in the after-school program, to meet Denney at the Park and see the Carroll County Memorial which they didn’t know existed. The visit was in preparation for an assignment related to Veteran’s Day. Bridge stands for Building Resources that Increase the Desire to Graduate for Everyone and it is sponsored by a state grant “21st Century Community Learning Centers” which provides two teachers for every 10 students. Any student in grades 9 – 12 can attend but the focus is on the 9th grade. The goal is to improve math and science scores on the CRCT.
