Auxiliary members believe that a solid educational foundation is the cornerstone of American freedom. The Auxiliary’s Education program promotes quality education for every child and supports students in their desire to continue their education beyond high school. Auxiliary members work actively with educators and local schools to develop and maintain an educational system that serves the needs of all children at every level. Auxiliary volunteers sponsor and support state and national education legislation; establish new scholarship opportunities for students; alert eligible students to existing scholarship resources; help students identify career opportunities and professional job requirements; and encourage students to plan early for college and apply for scholarship opportunities.
The “Veterans in the Classroom” program will now be called “*Veterans in Community Schools*”. This title more accurately covers things such as volunteering in various ways in addition to single classroom programs. We are encouraged to tutor, share flag education etiquette, assist with field trips, etc. etc. and be a visible presence in our schools. The new title will encompass “all” of those activities rather than just appear to focus on single classroom presentations.
