AMERICA'S NATIONAL PARKS — Director of the National Park Service Jon Jarvis visited Mississippi State Tuesday, giving a public address in the evening titled, "National Parks & American Values: A Field Guide." The director described how the national treasures embody American values from freedom, as demonstrated at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pa., to leadership, as demonstrated at Mount Rushmore and the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial at the National Mall. He described many of the nation's parks as "American cathedrals" which were set aside for the enjoyment of all citizens. Photos available at facebook.com/msstate.
