Williams Elementary School Celebrates Take a Veteran to School Day

| November 09, 2015 | |

Local Veterans Will Be Honored Wednesday at the School

State Representative Marsha Farney and Suddenlink employees will join Williams Elementary School students and faculty as they honor local veterans at a Take a Veteran to School Day program, Wednesday, Nov. 11.  The Take a Veteran to School Day project is part of a national initiative by the History Channel and Suddenlink, which provides cable services in Georgetown.

Take a Veteran to School programs provide a way for students to learn more about the history of Veterans Day and about the experiences of veterans from all backgrounds and walks of life.

Veterans will be honored with a breakfast at the GISD Central Office before leaving to visit several Georgetown schools.  The veterans who visit Williams Elementary School will be greeted by students wearing Take a Vet to School wristbands provided by History Channel, faculty members and representatives from Suddenlink, who will honor the hometown heroes at an assembly.
