That is the Emma Sansom Middle School 8TH Grade Chorus singing at a special ceremony for one of their school district’s former educators. The school has a new classroom intended to inspire students outdoors, as Ben Pilitary did in the classroom and school district. The new outdoor classroom and courtyard was dedicated to Pilitary in a ceremony attended by school officials, staff, community members and members of Pilitary’s family. Pilitary is a former principal of Emma Sansom High School and is also known in the community as a popular coach and teacher. Pilitary says today's honor was a pleasant surprise. Pilitary still visits the school and offers his help. He retired from the school system more than 25 years ago. The middle school decided to name the classroom and courtyard in his honor in May. The project to create the classroom began last Summer.
