Editor, Webster County Citizen:
Today, Nov. 11, 2020, which is Veterans Day, I received a folder containing numerous letters from students honoring all veterans in the United States of America.
These students were from Ms. Porter’s creative-writing class at Seymour’s school.
Please be advised, Ms. Porter and all of your students, each one of these special letters touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful gift from these young people. Over 70 years, very few people have expressed their gratitude toward the veterans of this great nation.
In my lifetime, I have known many teachers ... but few dedicated educators. These people have given their whole life preparing themselves to educate our children. I am thankful for the educators that put forth the effort to educate the next generation that will lead our great nation.
Thank you, Ms. Porter, Ms. Aguero and the students that provided this wonderful gift.
Howard Wilkins, Seymour
