Honors students help in Black Belt

      {}{}{}{} Working in Marion of {}Perry County is more than just an assignment for about 15 University of Alabama students.

      {}{}{}{} They're learning a wealth of knowledge about the underprivileged area of the black belt.

      {}{}{}{} The students are Honors students and among a laundry list of work -- Wednesday the students helped to spruce up the Old Lincoln High School...where Correta Scott King graduated.

      {}{}{}{} The building was abandoned in 1970 and has since become sort of a community center{}for the 'Marion County Quilters on Tuesdays.

      {}{}{}{}{}Senior citizens now the use the old high school to{}learn and teach others in the community how to sew and quilt

      {}{}{}{} University of Alabama Honors students chose it as one of{}several places to do community service .{} For the past, three weeks they have held technology workshops, done things such as held an art work shop, repaired batting cages at the city park...but,{}the painting and cleaning of Old Lincoln High has been most inspiring.

      {}{}{}{} Friday will be the students last day in Marion.
