Friday Assembly

What an inspirational Friday Assembly we had!! Our campus welcomed special guests from the US Armed Forces.  
Col Tim Raynor, United States Marine Corps spoke to us about the pillars of citizenship: Integrity, Honor, Responsibility and Selfless Behavior. He then introduced Medal of Honor Recipient, Bruce Crandall, Major, U.S. Army, Retired who served in Vietnam. There are only 78 living Medal of Honor recipients so having Major Crandall was a huge honor. We also welcomed USMC hero dog, Lucca. She is now retired after serving in the United States Marine Corps for six years.

We were also treated to a closing song from country recording artist Phil Vandal who spoke to us about how he 'gives back' through his music.
