Veterans Day Observance Set at Spring Forest Middle School

Military veterans who are residents of Spring Branch are cordially invited to be our special guests during a patriotic assembly in the Spring Forest Middle School gymnasium on Monday, Nov. 12. The school assembly will begin at 9 a.m. with a breakfast hosted by students for veterans and their families beginning at 8 a.m. that morning.

The annual Veterans Day observance at Spring Forest Middle School honors hundreds and is one of the biggest such events held in Houston.

Raised in the Houston area, Priest was an honor student at Clear Lake High School. Active in the Corps of Cadets, he graduated from Texas A&M University with a business management degree. Priest earned a Marine Corps Scholarship and was commissioned in December 2003. A San Antonio resident, he works today in the medical device sales industry.
