Marshall Co. Students' Ornaments to Hang in D. C.
Christmas tree ornaments created by Marshall County students will hang on Kentucky’s tree in the 2012 National Christmas Tree display. Each state has a tree in the President’s Park in Washington D. C. Students from South Marshall Middle School, Benton Middle School and Marshall County High School created ornaments inspired by Kentucky’s outdoors, its history and traditions, and the Kentucky Derby. The Marshall County Arts Commission and the Kentucky Arts Council organized the project. The National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony is Dec. 6.
