Eugene Barnett, a World War 2 Veteran who participated in the Normandy invasion, with the help of his daughter Cindy Baker and granddaughter Sarah Baker shared his experiences in the military. The program increased the student’s knowledge and appreciation for those who have served in our military and the sacrifices made by military members and their families. Students had a chance to talk with Veterans on a personal level, exchange stories and ask questions. Lunch was provided to our Veterans by our school PTA and served by our Student Council and Girl Scouts. To all the Veterans in our community, the students at Meece Middle School would like to say “thanks” and we appreciate all that you have done for our country.
