Sequoyah 2nd Graders Write to Airmen

Trina Waller's 2nd grade students have been writing to airmen and soldiers that are deployed over seas. When they tell the class that they are coming home, Trina will search for someone new for them to start writing to.

This past week her class had a surprise guest, Teyler Williston who has been deployed with the Air Force as a firefighter and just got back to the States. He hand delivered letters, answered all of their questions, and taught them about what he did while he was deployed. Her students had a blast and learned more about what it means to serve our country and to be in the armed forces.

Thank you to Mr. Williston for going out of your way to speak to our 2nd graders, and thank you and all of the men and women fighting over seas for the sacrifices you make for those of us at home.
