The Dixie Marquee Project

The Dixie and the City engaged Huntingdon High School high school students in the design of potential marquee signs for the Center. Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) instructors, Gränges Americas engineers and Dixie staff collaborated with students on designs and five submissions chosen as finalists. The community voted for the design that was ultimately fabricated. Through the arts, the Dixie and the City hoped to increase engagement and expand into other avenues of collaboration by connecting with local youth, industrial business and the technology center.
