Outdoor learning center dedicated

By Cade Fowler - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The wife of a long time Dougherty County leader received an honor from the school that shares her husband's name.

Students and faculty at Lamar Reese Elementary School dedicate their outdoor learning center to Sandra McKimie Reese. Both Sandra and Lamar Reese cut the ribbon to the new gazebo which is named in her honor. Even though the project has been in the works for several months, she says the event came as a bit of a surprise.

"I just learned last week, actually. I knew that the gazebo had been built, but I had no it was going to be named in my honor. And it's quite an honor."

The dedication was held in conjunction with Earth Day. Administrators say the gazebo will provide an excellent environment for students to learn outside of the classroom.
