Calling on Local Veterans

Do you know a local veteran? The 7th grade social studies teachers need your help!

This year, we are inviting Lexington County veterans (or those that are actively serving) to our campus to interview about their lives, service, and the choice they made to serve/help others. We plan to preserve veteran stories into a magazine that will be released to the public that will focus on the veterans of Lexington County. This will be a wonderful experience not only to help our students grow into effective communicators, but also to preserve the history of their bravery and service to our country. We ask that anyone that knows of a local veteran that would like to be interviewed by our students to please fill out the google form link https://goo.gl/forms/vvUvNk1qgpo6mOU43.
