In honor of Veterans’ Day, the staff and students at Noah Webster Schools took time out of their busy routine to honor the brave soldiers who call the Valley of the Sun their home. The students created over 1,200 writing and coloring projects for The Mesa Veterans Resource Center to be handed out to local veterans.
On November 6th, the Scottsdale Campus Student Council presented their projects to a very special member of our armed forces. In her short 26 years, Danielle Skranak has served in the United States Army and spent 4 years as a military correctional guard at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. Recently Ms. Skranak won the Miss Gilbert title and will soon be competing for the Miss Arizona title. Ms. Skranak shared her incredible story with the students during an assembly to honor her services.
As Noah Webster Schools continued to honor Veterans Day, on Nov. 13th, the Mesa Campus Student Council presented projects to another amazing hero and his companion, Caleb. David Campbell joined the Army at the age of 17 and served in Iraq for two years where he was severely wounded as his Unit headed into Kuwait. With the help of his service dog, Caleb, Dave draws from his personal journey of healing to help other Veterans around the valley.
The Mesa Veterans Resource Center provides comprehensive resources to access services and personal assistance with employment, soft skills training, resume building, benefit claims and counseling, healthcare, transportation, workshops, homelessness, and mental health. Over the next few months, the projects created by Noah Webster students will be handed out to veterans as they visit the facility.
Noah Webster Schools would like to express their gratitude to David Campbell, Danielle Skranak and all the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country.
