READING IN THE ‘PARK’ — Obion County Central High School junior Hailey Parson (left) and sophomore Mia Noonan, students in the school’s teaching classes, led a session with students at Hillcrest Elementary School in Troy as part of special Read Across America activities held all day Friday. The OCCHS teaching classes, under the direction of teacher Amy Montgomery, went to Hillcrest to promote reading to the younger students. They used the book “Our Great Big Backyard,” written by former First Lady Laura Bush and daughter Jenna Bush Hager, which encourages Americans to spend time in and care for national parks. The OCCHS students dressed in the parks theme and decorated for various national parks that were “toured” by the Hillcrest students.
