Eagle Scout Project Completed

Clay E. Wood, of Boy Scout Troop 48 in Jackson, has completed his Eagle Scout service project. 

The project was to capture stories about Jackson and turn them into DVDs for the archives of the Jackson Historical Society. The project was called "Memories Of Jackson". 

Clay recruited people to interview 11 members of the community and recorded their stories with a video camera. In addition to the interviewers, several members of Troop 48 scouts participated by being the camera operator during the interviews. 

Those persons interviewed included: Alfred "Sonny" Ruston, Wylodine McCormick, Paul Buck, Sigred Sheward, Eugene Heath, Bernadine Stockmeister, Mary Kathern Smalley, Robert Ervin, Winifred "Winnie" Blair, Paul Berridge, and Charles Bowman.

The completed 11 interviews total about 7 hours and are on 3 different DVDs. The Jackson Historical Society will keep the collection in their archives and hopes to make them available to the public in the future.
