To the editor:
American Education Week will be celebrated Nov.
14-20 in schools across America. As a member of the American Legion
Auxiliary, I am encouraging the community to use this opportunity to
celebrate education and to honor individuals who are making a
difference in ensuring every child receives a quality education.

custodians etc. Each help in their own way to guide our children
while they are in school.
Students in this area excel in academic and school activities.
They take such an important part in our community. American
Education Week is a time we can give back to the schools what they

You, as a citizen, can promote American Education Week in a

The American Legion family has a long-standing interest in and
commitment to American education and is proud to co-sponsor American
Education Week. Our scholarships help students make their college

their own schools since their own graduation from high school. Take
time to visit the school of your choice.
Help to observe this week to praise all those who contribute to
the future of our nation... OUR YOUTH.
