Park Elementary honored Specialist Stan Mecham, parent of Zoee and Griff Mecham, and hero to the Park Elementary family.  

As part of the National Guard's deployment of the 116th, Specialist Mecham will be heading to Kuwait on a year long mission.  To send him off, Park students expressed gratitude by singing God Bless the USA, preparing patriotic speeches, and writing "Thank You" notes for Specialist Mecham to read while serving our country.

Specialist Mecham then addressed the audience to explain his mission in rebuilding bases and camps in Kuwait.  He expressed his gratitude for a wonderful send off.  We are forever grateful for his service in protecting our freedoms and the freedoms of others throughout the world.
