Milton H. Young performed the work on the new indentification marker for Greene County High School.

Greene County High School in Eutaw, Alabama, recently replaced its old marker with this new brick design for identification.

Through the efforts of Mrs. Carolyn M. Young, principal; Dr. Douglas L, Ragland, superintendent of schools; board members; faculty and student body, this new design with a tiger, the school's mascot, mounted on the top has fostered a deeper sense of pride and promoted greater community awareness for the school academic and athletic programs. The school is located just 1.8 miles east on U. S. Highway 14 at Exit 40 of - 120/59.

The new design is constructed with a reinforced concrete foundation 6" thick. Approximately 3,300 bricks were laid with 140, 12" blocks used as fillers. Overall dimension are: 14'-6" length; 9'-4" height; 1'-8 1/2" width.

Milton H. Young, retired masonry instructor, performed the work and continues to perform special jobs at the school. He holds professional membership in the Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA); National Masonry Instructors Association (NMIA); and the Alabama Masonry Instructors Association (AMIA) and certified (commercial/residential).

Young and other members of NMIA also served as judges for the International Masonry Skills Challenge at the Masonry Showcase held in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 29-31, 2006.
