Stephanie Tirado is our contest winner this year. Congratulations to you, Stephanie!
Stephanie's poem, which she recited at our Veteran's Day program:
From the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave
By: Stephanie Tirado
“From the land of the free and the home of the brave,”
we asked for your best and that’s what you gave.
You are the reason that we are free,
and many others around me will absolutely agree.
This ceremony is to honor and say “Thank You,”
because we are forever grateful for all that you do.
You had to try your hardest until the very last fight,
and are still sitting here with smiles so bright.
So, thank you again for battling to save,
“The land of the free and the home of the brave.”
Behind the scenes of the Veteran's Day program with the Student Tech Team (AKA Garrett):
Garrett is the first member of the Student Tech Team here at Arthur Williams! He has been shadowing me as I do some of the more 'techy' parts of my job: fixing projectors, setting up for professional development sessions, and the latest-making sure we have audio/visual capabilities for the Veteran's Day program. Garrett was the man behind the scenes making sure the volume was appropriate for each individual and the video equipment would be working properly.
