      Students work to let world known about Daufuskie

      Students at a Bluffton middle school want to make sure the world knows about Daufuskie Island.

      BLUFFTON, S.C. (AP) -- Students at a Bluffton middle school want to make sure the world knows about Daufuskie Island. The Beaufort Gazette reports that McCracken Middle School teacher Pam Davis noticed there wasn't much information about Daufuskie on Google Earth. So ninth-graders from her Google applications class are creating 3-D models of sites on the island they visited last month to later upload to Google Earth. The island is designated as an historic district on the National Register of Historic Places because of its Gullah and Civil War history. The island may be best known as the location where novelist Pat Conroy once taught. He related his experiences in his memoir "The Water is Wide" which was later made into the film "Conrack."
