We are excited to share that the generous gifts our Early Childhood/Teacher Education students and pre-school students sent to deployed soldiers were enthusiastically received. A wonderful thank you letter and photo of some of the men and women who received the items that were sent were received by Mrs. Vaughan. Once again, kindness speaks volumes, even when miles are between people. Thank you to all who participated and brightened the day for some of our troops who are away from home.
