Giving Thanks for Veterans
Hackley alum and Korean confict veteran Dick Hodgson '51 visited with Hackley first graders as a follow up to their Veterans' Day letter writing project.
In November, as members of the Hackley community wrote letters of appreciation to share with veterans in recogniton of Veteran's Day, Hackley first graders included letters to Hackley's own Dick Hodgson among the letters they wrote. On December 14, Mr. Hodgson stopped by to offer his thanks in person. He talked to students about his service, and answered their questions with his characteristic warmth and good humor. What a wonderful moment of Hackley connection -- Class of 2029 to Class of 1951!
