East Forest School to Host Veteran’s Program on November 2 with Presentation by Robert Snyder

SnyderMARIENVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – The East Forest Junior/Senior High School is hosting a Veteran’s program with a presentation by a U.S. Army Veteran on Friday, November 2.

The program will start at 8:00 a.m. for K through 6 and at 9:00 a.m. for 7 through 12.

Robert Snyder, a 15-year U.S. Army Veteran, a former elementary teacher, and current professor at Slippery Rock University will present an hour-long presentation and share his book “What is a Veteran, Anyway?” on PowerPoint with additional photos of his deployment to Iraq.

The goal is to help the students relate to some of the common aspects and hardships soldiers face in a developmentally appropriate way for children. Having taught 1st, 5th, and 6th-grade students for 10 years, he is able to bridge the connection between military service and children to help foster appreciation for our service men and women.

The public is welcome.

East Forest Junior/Senior High School is located at 120 East Birch Street, Marienville, Pa.
