Titanic trivia was the theme for Jefferson Elementary School fifth-grader Gentry Dougherty Friday.

Dougherty, who created a display to commemorate the ocean liner earlier this spring, visited a number of classrooms to share Titanic facts in marking today’s centennial anniversary of the ship’s infamous and ill-fated maiden voyage.

The ship, while en route from England to New York City, struck an iceberg late in the evening April 14, 1912, and sunk about three hours later, early the next day.
