First Grade Team Recognized for Citizenship & Generosity

First Graders at Goochland Elementary School gather for a group photo after the presentation of their profits to the Families of the Wounded Fund – 06/06/14

As a result of Mrs. Heather Black, Mrs. Cary Farr, and Ms. Kelley Taylor’s efforts to deliver a developmentally appropriate, real world economics project to their 58 first grade students, the team made a donation of $101 to Marine Sergeant Brandon Hipp from The American Legion Post 215. Sergeant Hipp, in turn, immediately presented the donation to George Nyfeler of the Families of the Wounded Fund.

The American Legion celebrated this noteworthy accomplishment further on their website.
