McGuffey 6th Grade - Art Speaks Louder than Words

By Ben 
Lincoln County residents may soon notice some extra big splashes of color up in public spaces thanks to an art project by McGuffey sixth-grade students aimed at preventing child abuse.  Students in Allison Gibson’s sixth grade art class have produced community art projects in past years for Child Abuse Prevention Month, which occurs every April.
