Jack Greenawalt, Hickory Creek Middle School seventh-grader
Student reporter: Assembly honors U.S. veterans
4:35 pm CST January 9, 2018

In November, the Hickory Creek Middle School seventh grade class gathered at an assembly to celebrate U.S. military veterans. During the two hour assembly, the Lincoln-Way ROTC sang the national anthem and took part in the raising of the flag. Several veterans spoke about their time serving, the school rock band “Lunch Bunch” played an original song dedicated to veterans, and our social studies teachers Mrs. Gatsios and Mrs. Ryan announced our class donation of $6,500 (which is being doubled by an anonymous donor) for Honor Flight Chicago.
