The Welches Middle School Choir joined a special ceremony at the World Forestry Center in southwest Portland to celebrate the release of the new Mount Hood quarter. It's the fifth in the 56-quarter "American the Beautiful" series to be released by the U.S. Mint over the next 11 years. The children in the audience were the first to receive the new Oregon quarters. Eighth grader Eavan Burden says she'll keep her quarter forever. The U.S. Mint has created educational materials teachers can use to discuss the monuments featured on the coins and their history.
