Students Design Stamps

By  | 

It's a time to celebrate education at South Elementary in Muhlenberg County.

The second graders in Tonya Pendley's class were given the theme "Today's Student's Are Tomorrow's Teachers" and were asked to design stamps for the post office.

Post Master Relief, Barbara Mercer, says: "Each child was given a blank 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper and told to use their creativity and imagination to come up with some new designs."

The students could only use class time to work on their projects.

Once the designs were finished they were hung in the post office, so the community could vote for their favorites.

Mercer says the patrons couldn't believe second graders came up with the designs. "They were just really, really impressed with their ideas and how creative they were."

Besides getting more patrons in the post office, everyone involved hopes the students take the value of education with them.

The five winning stamps will be posted in the Cleaton Post Office.
