Students get cotton education

School NewsGreg Higgins

The third grade classes from Everett Elementary visited the new state-of-the-art cotton gin in Delta County.  The tour included exploring a cotton field where each was able to take with them cotton from the bowl to climbing up into a big cotton picker to seeing how the process of packing cotton worked.  Teachers and students were then treated to hot dogs, chips, cookies and drinks.  The gin provided students with coloring books and new found knowledge on the cotton gin process.
