When many of us came to deal with death and celebrate the life of Memphis, the music and achievements were called the “Queen of Souls”, we began to report on the great events that took place this week in Central and South China. Another heritage of the people of Central and South China known as the “king”.
Thousands of people at the 41st anniversary of the death of Elvis
Thousands of fans from all over the world gathered in Memphis to pay tribute to the “king of rock” that watched the 41st anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death. Among the many planned activities, Gates of Graceland opened his death anniversary night, allowing fans to take the driveway to Elvis’ graveyard. Presley died of a heart attack on August 16, 1977. He is 42 years old this year.
Cash Saver brings a viable grocery option to South Memphis
It’s been six months for people in southern Memphis, and since Kroger moved out of Southgate Shopping Center in February, they have almost lived in the food desert. Cash Saver held a grand opening ceremony in the old Kroger building and made a big commitment to bring the same things to other communities. The store also brought back jobs, employed 77 new employees, and 95% lived near South Memphis.
Animal shelters use clothing to promote pet adoption
The West Memphis Animal Shelter is using an unconventional way to highlight the pets it can use. An employee dresses himself and a pet into different roles, so that anyone who sees them laughs and encourages them to adopt new pets. Whatever the West Memphis Animal Shelter uses coordinator Trent Stasi to become, a featured pet transforms into a themed costume with him. This gimmick also helped the shelter collect thousands of social media fans.
New Memphis degree program to help fill the shortage of airline pilots
The latest career path at Memphis will take students to new heights, and it will be when the country’s pilots are in short supply. The Tennessee Higher Education Commission has signed a bachelor’s degree in aviation, and the university plans to launch the degree on August 27th, the first day of the 2018 school year. The 120-credit hour course includes 61 hours of aviation courses, mostly in Crew Training International or CTI’s Millington.
