In today’s world, law enforcement, and emergency personnel are societies unsung heroes. As the first to be criticized, they’re also the first to be called when an emergency or catastrophe occurs.
Hackett School District wanted their students to understand that while Superman, and Sports icons have their place, the real super heroes of this world are Military, Police, Fire, First Responders, and Emergency response men, and women of all capacities, titles, and rank.
To do that, Hackett High School, Michael Freemans stated, “our faculty centered their lessons around job descriptions, and the events of 9/11.” Freeman added, “we wanted our students knowing and understanding what these men, and women do to help us, and our community on a daily basis.”
With 600 students from Hackett Elementary, and High school attending their pep rally on Friday, it was the perfect setting to celebrate our heroes, front and center.
Hackett High School FBLA sold shirts which were selling faster than they could be made, and the Special Events Committee organized the cake and refreshments after the event.
Freeman commented, “our students cheered for a solid 5 minutes as the personnel entered the floor. This event was a total success for all involved. I couldn’t be happier. It was a good day.”
Resident Press would like to thank Hackett School District for honoring our heroes, and showing their students what a super hero is all about. We would also like to thank the men, and women serving our communities in roles where the possibility of danger exists, everyday. God Bless you all.
