The Master's Academy, a private Christian school in Marianna assigned the Veteran coverage in recent issues of the Jackson County Times as homework for their fourth through eighth grade students.
Copies of the November 7 issue of the newspaper were provided for each student by the Jackson County Times. Mrs. Wooden, Founder of TMA stated "The newspaper is packed with important information regarding Veteran's Day". The assignment requirements were to "select an article regarding Veterans Day, a Veteran or History of the wars or people mentioned in any of the articles." The due date for this assignment was November 12, 2013. Students were also instructed to thank a Veteran over the weekend.
The Times is honored to assist these students with the study of our country's amazing history. Many of the veteran stories were sponsored by Ricky Miller and Rahal-Miller Motors, along with historical documentation and research in the stories written by local historian Pat Crisp. Adding to this body of material were stories written by Times staff writer Bo McMullian and contributing columnist Homer Hirt.
