“If I wanted to make candles in the 1800s, would I go to the store to buy wax?”  asks Rush Strong School art teacher Jessica Jarnigan at the “Read to be Ready” camp.

Over 40 campers are making candles and she wants them to think about where wax comes from as they study Appalachian culture and history.
