JV Washam Elementary School held a dedication ceremony for the completion of the Hawk’s Nest Playground and Outdoor Living Center. The playground was funded through a grant from the Jimmie Johnson Foundation, with sponsorships from Lowe’s Toolbox for Education, local businesses and school families.

The PTO recognized supporting businesses and individuals with an aerial photo taken by TSS Photography on the Cornelius Fire Department’s ladder truck.
