This week's Friday Assembly was truly something special as we hosted honored guests. We were joined by Retired Corporal USMC Hershel Woodrow Williams. He is a United States Medal of Honor recipient. He spoke to us about his career with the Marines and the experiences leading to his being awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest award that can be given to military personal for acts of valor.
