WMS learns local history at Memorial


Eighth-grade students from Wilmington Middle School took a walking field trip Monday as an ending activity to their study of Veterans Day. More than 240 students in two shifts walked to downtown Wilmington to experience first-hand the educational sources at the Clinton County Veterans Memorial. Students read the letters written by Clinton County veterans to their families, and also searched for bricks commemorating their own relatives who have served this country.
