Hebron recognizes “heroes” at Homecoming
PHEBA – Hebron Christian may be a small school but they said “thank-you” in a big way to hometown and area heroes during spirit week and Homecoming festivities Oct. 4.
Students dressed up each day as someone who represented a hero to them.
“We had lots of doctors, nurses, firemen, teachers, mom and dads, policemen and military,” said Christy Latham.
Each day, students, faculty and administration attended a school-wide assembly that included pledges,prayer and the singing of “God Bless America.”
Several guests visited the school to discuss their careers, including paramedic Todd Shettles, nurse Sherry Griffin, fireman Curt Jernigan, sheriff’s deputy Eddie Scott, Brigadier General Gary Huffman, and Air Force Chaplain’s Assistant Christopher Chesser.
“They all told about their jobs, shared stories and told how they came to join their professions,” Latham said. “Each one makes personal sacrifices of time and talent to serve the community.”
The school recognized Laura Fulgham, a 17-year employee of HCS, who currently teaches K4 and is a bus driver.
The week culminated with Homecoming festivities held pre-game and at halftime of the Hebron/Strider football game.
