City of VIcksburg Building and Maintenance workers, from left, Charles Smith, Joey Hearn, Sammie Rainey and Mark Daniels, install a refurbished sign at Beulah Cemetery Wednesday. Students from Vicksburg and Warren Central high schools who attend Hinds Community College’s Accredited Career Technical Center welded and reconditioned the sign for the burial ground established in 1884 off Martin Luther King Boulevard. The 60-year-old arch had fallen and part of it was gone. The city provided scrap metal to replace the damaged legs that support the arch.
