Local VFW Recognizes Copperfield Efforts

Copperfield Elementary School is one of the JISD campuses that is home to a significant number of military-connected students. That means there are some intentional efforts to encourage those who serve our country in the armed forces. Recently, Copperfield teacher Sabrina Richmond was recognized by the Veterans of Foreign Wars for her leadership in supporting veterans and their families through correspondence and artwork that the kids created specifically for those who serve.  It was expressed to Ms. Richmond at a special awards banquet how much those kinds of notes and hand-drawn pictures mean to them. She was presented with a special certificate of commendation from the VFW for her work.  We appreciate Ms. Richmond for being such an effective liaison.
