Spectrum has organized a special event as part of HISTORY’s Take a Veteran to School Day outreach initiative to take place on Wednesday morning, November 8 at Coronado Middle School. The 10th annual event will honor veteran guests who will be presented with heartfelt gratitude for their service.
This event will feature classroom visits by pre-selected veterans and will conclude with a military parachute jump onto the Coronado High School football field, located across the street from Coronado Middle School.
- Welcome program to begin at approximately 7:45 am in Coronado Middle School’s Granzer Hall
- Parachute jump scheduled for approximately 9:45 am at the Coronado High School football field (weather permitting)
“Spectrum is proud to partner with HISTORY and Coronado Middle School to help recognize our nation’s veterans,” said Cindy Howell, Spectrum Vice President, State Government Affairs – West Region. “This event provides a unique opportunity for students to learn about service and sacrifice directly from our veterans while giving them the thanks they deserve.”
Take a Veteran to School Day is HISTORY’s popular public affairs outreach program, connecting veterans from all walks of life with students in schools and communities nationwide. In 2017, thousands of schools in all 50 states are expected to participate. As part of this campaign, HISTORY offers participating schools curriculum-based educational materials at www.veterans.com as well as short videos and additional resources, all provided free-of-charge.
Take a Veteran to School Day is a key component of HISTORY’s broad veterans outreach campaign which also includes Thank a Veteran at Work, which encourages employers to recognize former military service men and women. HISTORY is also a proud partner of many veterans-based non-profits including Team Rubicon, a disaster relief organization that unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams.
