Eason Veterans Day Visitor

On November 12, students in Sarah Stanley’s second grade class at Eason Elementary were extremely excited for their “Mystery Reader”.  Miss Stanley’s brother-in-law, Matthew York (USMC veteran), visited the class to celebrate Veteran’s Day and to read to the students.  Not only did he read “There’s a Wocket in My Pocket” by Dr. Seuss, he brought several things to share with the class as well.  Matthew also answered questions – 23 to be exact!  He responded to every student’s question ranging from “What kind of pajamas did you wear in the desert?” to “What’s your favorite color?” It was a great way for students to meet a serviceman and learn some new things about enlisted life.
