(L-R) MDNHA grant committee chair Kim Terrell and MDNHA chair Dr. Myrtis Tabb present the grant to AmeriCorps VISTA member Brittany Neal and Delta Hands For Hope executive director Lane Riley, with MDNHA executive director Dr. Rolando Herts.
Participants documented Delta culture, history, sports, and landscapes such as aerial photography. The program has led one participant to start a photography business.
Photographs produced in the program have been published in the local newspaper, the Bolivar Commercial; exhibited in Rosedale, Cleveland, and Illinois; and oral histories were deposited with the Archives at Delta State University.
