A Little More About WHG

As a lot of you know Johnston County School Systems still requires seniors to do graduation projects.  As a student who believes that the senior project is a great learning experience, I have decided to use this as an opportunity to try and help make things better for some people who've worked hard to make everything here, in America, as great as it is for us today.  We may not all agree with the politics going on in this nation but one thing I know we can all agree on is that soldiers have dedicated their lives to giving us our freedom.  As a freshman I heard someone say: a soldier, whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to " The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including their life."  This is why I am dedicating the time allotted for my senior project to hosting a golf tournament to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.  The Wounded Warrior Project is a non-profit organization that dedicates its time to helping soldiers who, in one way or another, have been wounded in combat.  As a person from a military family, I know that not all wounds are visible.  Some wounds go much deeper than the surface and that is why I have chosen to dedicate such a large part of my senior year to this well worthy cause.
