Freedom Shrine dedicated at Robert Cross Middle School

November 5, 2004

Albany -- Students at Robert Cross Middle Magnet School in Albany will be able to easily learn about their country's heritage. They will pass copies of some of America's most historical documents in their hall everyday.

The Albany Exchange Club donated a Freedom Shrine to Robert Cross Middle School. 33 documents like the Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, and the U.S. Constitution are mounted on the wall in the front hall.

Exchange Club President Carlisle Metts said "Every young American ought to have the opportunity to see the original documents, and see what their forefathers did to establish this country and make it so great."

The Exchange Club has mounted a Freedom Shrine in every school in Dougherty County now.
