FRONT ROYAL -- Although the U.S. Mint issued its last state quarter five years ago, it's been steadily chugging out new designs commemorating five national parks each year since then.

This spring, the Shenandoah National Park will get its turn on the coin when it's released on April 7. Shenandoah will be the second "America the Beautiful Quarter" to be issued this year, preceded by Great Smoky Mountains and ahead of Arches, Great Sand Dunes and Everglades national parks.

Pam McInnis, superintendent of Warren County Public Schools, said Skyline High School will host an issuing ceremony on the morning of April 4 to release the Shenandoah National Park quarters.

"We'll have representation of students that will be a part of the process and be invited to attend," she said.

She said the director of the U.S. Mint is coming to the school for another site visit and said people will be able to buy uncirculated quarters at the public event.
