Holiday letters to deployed soldiers

Lauren Welch’s history classes at the Agriculture Science Early College (ASEC) wrote Christmas cards to those actively serving in the US Armed Forces.

Mrs. Welch decided on this project because she felt that there is much to be thankful for in spite of the difficulties of 2020. She said “It’s been a challenging semester for everyone, but taking a few moments to practice gratitude and remembering that we still get to spend the holidays with our families thanks to the service of others is what we needed to finish out the year.”

Lily Warren, a student, helped in the effort. She said, “I think this is a great idea because these people do so much to serve our country and this was the least we could do to try and brighten up someone’s day.”
