SGA Sponsors Wonderful Veterans Day Assembly!

Mr. Terry Norris

Mr. Terry Norris, Keynote Speaker, Retired Major with the US Marine Corps and FMS Computer Essentials Teacher, Pirate Nation News Executive Producer, Archery Coach, and FBLA Advisor

This year's Fairhope Middle School Veterans program sponsored by SGA began with our talented school nurse, Mrs. Jackson, singing the National Anthem. Fairhope Middle School's Student Government Association collected almost $300 from students and parents to donate to the William F. Green Veteran's Home.  Retired Sergeant Harold Bryson from the Veterans Home was in attendance to accept the donation.  He also spoke to the students and guests.

Members of the Baldwin County Honor Guard presented the Folding of the Flag Ceremony, with Lieutenant Colonel Frank Connell giving an explanation of the meaning behind this ceremony. This year's keynote speaker was Fairhope Middle School's own Major Terry Norris, retired 26-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps.
