Congratulations……...to our very own Claudette Barker winning the 2018 Smart/Maher VFW National Citizenship Education Teacher Award

The VFW Teacher of the Year award contest recognizes three exceptional teachers for their outstanding commitment to teaching Americanism and Patriotism to their students. Each year, a classroom elementary, junior high and high school teacher whose curriculum focuses on citizenship education topics — for at least half of the school day in a classroom environment — can be nominated for the Smart/Maher VFW National Citizenship Education Teacher Award.

Without our Nation’s Veterans, America wouldn't be the great nation it is today. Our youth deserves to learn about our rich history, traditions and the role of our veterans in creating and shaping America.
