WWI living memorial re-dedicated

Six holly trees were planted in 1920 on Henderson State University’s South Lawn to honor five students and a faculty member who lost their lives in World War I. The creation of the living memorial was part of a nationwide campaign to honor the lives lost in the war. Henderson’s holly grove is the last surviving memorial in the state. A re-dedication ceremony was held Nov. 11 at the site where a plaque listing the names of the servicemen was unveiled.
