As a member of the military community, these NWHS students made 75 ornaments for the Christmas Tree representing the United States Army.

All five branches of the military, law enforcement, first responders, veterans, and more were represented on the many trees decorating the Tennessee Residence, home of Governor Bill Haslam and his wife Crissy.

Last month, four members of S2S and their sponsor, Karen Hock Stasiorowski, visited the residence to view all the trees on display.

Even more exciting were the comments from other visitors that were viewing the trees.

They seemed genuinely excited to meet some of the “artists” that contributed to the Army Tree!

The Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) Student 2 Student (S2S) program trains civilian and military-connected high school students to establish and sustain peer-based programs in their schools to support mobile children as they transition to and from the school.
