In support of Veterans Day and education, Senator Joe Robach was pleased to team with Time Warner Cable, the History Channel and the Brighton Central School District to bring Take a Vet to School Day to Brighton High School. This nationwide program gives students of all ages the chance to hear stories of service and sacrifice from area veterans.
Joe Robach supported this educational program that gave students firsthand learning experiences and lessons in American history. This year, nine veterans volunteered their entire day to share their stories with several history classes at Brighton High School. Each veteran had the opportunity to tell the students what serving our nation has meant to him and the valuable lessons they learned in sacrifice. Following the introductions, students were given the opportunity to ask the veterans about their personal experiences, what war was like or why they gave up years of their youth to defend our nation.
“I’m so honored to have the opportunity to host this special event, along with Time Warner Cable and the History Channel,” said Senator Joe Robach. “I truly hope the students of Brighton High School know how fortunate they are to have had this opportunity to learn from our veterans, and most importantly, hear about the sacrifices they’ve made so we can enjoy all the freedoms we take for granted on a daily basis.”
Joe Robach looks forward to continuing to support various educational programs, like Take a Vet to School Day, in hopes of enhancing the classroom experience for students throughout the community.
