DeSoto County Exhibit Shares the Memory of the 1.5 Million Children Lost in the Holocaust

Susan Powell likely wouldn't have been successful as a teacher in the DeSoto County School District if she was afraid of challenging her students.

At the start of the 2009-10 school year, Powell and her teaching colleague Melissa (Swartz) Wheeler issued a challenge to kids at Horn Lake Middle to collect 1.5 million pennies - one to represent the memory of every child that died in the Holocaust. With a big assist from the Memphis-Area Home Education Association (MHEA) "Generation SC" organization, that goal was met in a three-year period.
