Instead, it was Lieut. R.L. Greene helping local students become familiar with all the gadgets inside a modern police cruiser. Ninety-three second grade students from Washington Street Elementary School toured on Thursday the Rankin Museum of American Heritage and the Kemp Memorial Library in Ellerbe. Then the students and their teachers traveled to Rockingham where, after lunch at Mi Casita Mexican Restaurant, they toured the Rockingham Police Department and Rockingham Fire Department.

One teacher said the daylong field trip coincided with the students’ lessons on community and neighborhood.
