Norwood School students worked all year collecting donations for the Ozarks Honor Flight to send WWII veterans to Washington D.C. to visit the WWII Memorial. Today, May 20th of 2011, Steve Grant from KY3 News in Springfield Mo came to accept the donations.
The text below the photos is quoted from Ryan Forrest the announcer of the program.
Good morning, Norwood School, I’m Ryan Forrest, Norwood Student Body Vice-President. We are excited today to have Steve Grant, KY3 News Anchor and Ozark Flight Representative. If you remember, back in the fall at the Veteran’s Day Assembly, Norwood Schools and clubs set a goal of raising money to send veterans on the Ozark Honor Flight. Today, we have representatives from high school clubs, who will be presenting checks to Mr. Grant.

Next, we have sponsor Chris Sinning of the Future Farmers of America along with Shiann Russell to present a check.
Next we have Student Council sponsor, Jason Duey and me to present a check to Mr Grant. Throughout the year, we have sponsored several “Jeans Days” with Norwood Staff and Faculty. We are proud to present a check on behalf of Norwood Student Council.
