Bay District Recognizes Military Children During Month of the Military Child

News

The month of April is Month of the Military Child, a month to bring awareness to the challenges military children face as well as to show support.

On Tuesday, Bay District Officials, alongside Tyndall Air Force Base leaders and the Navy base joined together to read a proclamation making April the Month of the Military Child. The yearly tradition highlights the thousands of active and retired military families in our area. It brings attention to the unique challenges military children face as many move around often. Military students from all Bay County schools were at the school board meeting to be recognized for their sacrifices that sometimes go unnoticed. 

“The children are the ones that really hurt the most. Mom and Dad miss being with the kids but the kids I bet miss them more, so this is a way to say thank you,” said superintendent Bill Husfelt.

This Friday, April 12, is Purple Up Day. The district encourages people to wear purple to show your support for military children.
