JSCC Library Presents JFK Display

There are a few occasions in history when people can remember where they were when they heard monumental or life-changing news. The assassination of John F. Kennedy was definitely one of those events.

Library Director Scott Cohen with the assistance of several JSCC faculty and staff contributed items that help tell the story from this dark and sobering time in American history.  Library personnel Gloria Hester and Debra Lee were responsible for designing the display.

You are welcomed to come and see the display at the library. Contained in the display are original edition newspapers including The Dallas Morning News, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, The Commercial Appeal and The Jackson Sun. There are also several photos, memorabilia, books and magazines including Life, and the Saturday Evening Post.

The display will be open until the end of November. Be sure to stop by to see the display and take time to recollect this telling time in our nation’s history.
