Veteran’s Day is November, 11th. Schools all over the country are not in session to take time to honor the men and women that served our country in the military. The Center for Academic Success understands the value and respect we have for these brave and heroic individuals in our own area and through out the country. Our school community chose to take time out of their busy schedule to have a special flag ceremony lead by our local Civil Air Patrol students, with Airman First Class Tommy Nealis, Cody Benge, Erin Benge and Daniel Thomas presenting the colors to the crowd of several hundred students and staff. Ever opportunity to educate our students concerning our national patriotism, pride, and historical significance, is what we embrace and believe at CAS. Thank you to all the Veterans in our local community and countrywide from the CAS students, faculty and staff.
This past Saturday, volunteers from The Center for Academic Success, and more gathered at the Ethel H. Berger Center for the ninth annual Sierra Vista Empty Bowls Project. The project is a part of an international effort to raise awareness of hunger, and provide funds to end it. The students and staff at CAS volunteered to serve and help out in the dining area.
You can attend every year for free, and a usual $10.00 donation will buy you one of the many handmade bowls to choose from with the proceeds going to a world wide effort to end hunger.
With the election closely looming, it is hard not to think about a lesson in the electoral process, or the effects of the outcome for that matter. For Mr. Barkley’s Young Historian Club, a trip to the US Army Military Intelligence Museum (MI) on Fort Huachuca this past Friday brought to light another lesson in the voting process, the right to vote as well. Looking at the artifacts, such as a piece of the Berlin Wall brought to light the very ideal of how American citizen’s have more freedoms and rights than many people in various places through out the world. The MI gives students a chance to learn about how the military plays an important role in protecting those rights through gathering information about countries and organizations that may threaten what we value most, our freedom. If you would like to learn more about the interesting history of Military Intelligence, plan a trip to the U.S. Army Military Intelligence Museum (MI Museum).
