Student Council has always been part of bringing people together. It often supports the military, and in December they took the time to welcome Marine Jonathan Jacob Smith, son of physics teacher Amy Bright.

Students had made welcome home posters and waited for the family to arrive at Texas Roadhouse.

“They lined up the entire restaurant. As Jacob and I walked several people handed us roses and thanked Jacob for his service,” Bright said.

Several restaurant staff members had also served in the military and were excited to help.

“I was honored that they even wanted to do anything at all,” Bright said. “It was an amazing night and made our Christmas holiday even more special.”

Marine Smith was speechless, his mother said, when Student Council welcomed him. 

“He was overwhelmed by the amount of support he received from the community,” Bright said.

This was the first welcoming Marine Smith has received.

“We had wanted to do something for him in the past when he returned from boot camp, but this was more special,” she said.

“I am so grateful to be part of such a wonderful school and community,” Bright said, “and overwhelmed by the love and support my son and I received from our StuCo.”
