Students get gazebo from Lowe's

MT. OLIVE, MS (WDAM) - Some young students in Covington County have a new place to spend their recess thanks to a national retailer. The elementary school students at Mt. Olive Attendance Center will soon be enjoying a new gazebo.

It was purchased with a $5,000 Toolbox for Education grant from Lowe's.

Today, volunteers gathered to assemble it. Teachers say it was needed so the younger students could have a sheltered area to eat their snacks.

This year, Lowe's is making similar grants to 450 schools or parent organizations around the country.
