Mrs. Robin Hindley, 5th Grade teacher at Inverness Primary School, was presented a framed copy of the Declaration of Independence. This was in recognition the use of the SAR Americanism Poster Contest as a learning tool in teaching students about American History. The SAR Withlacoochee Chapter presents the copies of the nation's original documents to share with schools something that is permanent, educational and patriotic. The copy of the Declaration will be displayed on a wall at the school.
