Honoring veterans

Northeast Mississippi Community College unveiled its most recent addition to the Booneville campus on Thursday, Sept. 13. In conjunction with Military Appreciation Night at the Tiger football game, Northeast dedicated a three obelisk military veterans monument at the end of Cunningham Boulevard near the fountain. Contained within the three obelisks are the seals of the branches of the United States military -- the United States Army, the United States Navy, United State Marine Corp, the United States Air Force and the United States Coast Guard along with the National Guard. In addition to the six seals, the two five-feet tall obelisks are decorated with military men and women from all branches throughout the wars and conflicts in which the United States was involved. In the center of the monument, a six-foot-tall obelisk rises to read, "This memorial dedicated in honor of all men and women who served our country in the armed forces." Local elected officials and dignitaries helped to unveil the monument and included (from left) City of Booneville mayor Chris Lindley, Mississippi senator J.P. Wilemon, Mississippi representative Tracy Arnold, Alcorn County tax collector Larry Ross, former Booneville alderman Bobby Goddard, Northeast president Ricky Ford, Northeast Student Government Association president Weston Coggin, Mississippi representative Nick Bain, Military academy liaison and field representative for United States congressman Trent Kelly's office Melinda Whited and Northeast vice president for institutional advancement and executive director of the development foundation and alumni association Patrick Eaton.
