Keller ISD Students join with Charter, HISTORY to Honor Veterans

“Take a Veteran to School Day” event to feature State Rep. Matt Krause, Assistant Principal and Army National Guard Staff Sgt. Brad Burleson

FORT WORTH, Texas – Charter Communications, Inc., (NASDAQ: CHTR), HISTORY and the students of Trinity Springs Middle School will show appreciation for local veterans with a “Take a Veteran to School Day” event featuring an appearance from State Rep. Matt Krause and keynote address from Brad Burleson, Army National Guard veteran and assistant principal of Trinity Springs Middle School.

Dozens of local veterans from all branches of the military are expected to participate in the Veterans Day event that will combine musical performances, video presentations and other tributes for those who have served in the armed forces. The program is scheduled for 1:15 p.m., Nov. 11, at Trinity Springs Middle School, 3550 Keller Hicks Road, in Fort Worth.

“Take a Veteran to School Day” is a national program developed by HISTORY to link veterans with students nationwide. From class visits to school assemblies, these events provide a way for students to learn more about the history of Veterans Day. Inviting veterans to share their stories connects generations while helping young people learn about the past.

Charter Communications teamed with HISTORY to add Keller Independent School District’s Trinity Springs Middle School to the list of more than 5,000 schools in all 50 states participating in the “Take a Veteran to School Day” program this year.

During his 11-year career with the Army National Guard, Burleson has served as an infantryman during three deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. He’ll share his personal experiences with his students as he discusses the important purpose of Veterans Day – honoring America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

Rep. Krause, R-Fort Worth, will also address the students on the significance of Veterans Day. Krause’s support of military families includes joint-authoring a 2013 bill that allows the children of military service members five days of excused absence from school to spend with their parents who are being deployed or returning from deployment abroad.
