2nd grade class gets plaque, flag

Friday, March 29, 2019

The 2nd grade class of Mrs. Cary Friedrich at Alta Elementary School was presented a plaque and an American flag at school. The flag was flown in the skies over the Middle East on a combat mission aboard the feared A-10C Warthog flown by Nick Sand, a 2007 Alta High School alum. He has been deployed since January and Mrs. Friedrich’s class has been corresponding with him through letters and pictures learning about his fighter squadron’s part in fighting terrorism. They are developing a friendship through the correspondence and learning some aspects about what our military does for our liberties of freedom. Nick’s Mom, Renee Sand, works with Mrs. Friedrich’s class and enjoys seeing the students take such a great interest in drawing pictures and practicing their letter writing skills. Nick said he hung several of their Valentine’s Day cards around the Operations building for the squadron to enjoy. He’s hoping for a special visit to the 2nd grade class in Alta upon returning from deployment in late Spring./ Photo Submitted
