During the week of the Washington County Fair, students from all schools in Washington County were busy collecting food for our 1st Annual Stuff- A-Bus Food Drive in conjunction with School Days at the Fair. Through the efforts of our students and staff, 3,150 pounds of food were placed on a school bus and delivered to the Second Harvest Food Bank in Abingdon. Gary Mitchell, director of Second Harvest, commended our students for participating in such a worthwhile project. Many thanks to all of our students for their generosity and support of this community service project. Also, our thanks go out to the maintenance crew and transportation staff who collected and delivered the food to the food bank.

On Saturday, September 15th, twelve E.B. Stanley Middle School students walked in the Washington County Fair Parade representing our county school district. Students wore bright blue tee-shirts saying "Washington County Schools...Working to be the World's Best" and handed out brochures stating the goals and accomplishments of Washington County Schools. Walking with the E.B. Stanley group were students from other county middle schools, school board members, county administrators and Division Superintendent, Dr. Alan Lee. E.B. Stanley Middle School student Allyson D. said, "People were very receptive of our message." and Kelly B. said, "It was fun representing our school in the community."

Cpl Christopher C. Estep recently got the surprise of his life. Chase, as he was known by his teachers at John Battle High School, was chosen as 'Personnel to be Recognized' during a ceremony at Al Asad Airbase in Iraq, where he is currently stationed. While the selected military personnel knew that high ranking officials would be attending the ceremony, they had no idea that the President of the United States would be the guest of honor. What a feeling for the 700+ troops to get reassurance from their Commander in Chief that he was behind them all the way! Chase, a member of the United States Marine Corp, is a graduate of the class of 2001 and wanted to share his pictures with the current students and faculty of John Battle. He also sent Mr. LD Booher a US flag that was flown in Iraq. Chase has been in Iraq since January and is scheduled to arrive back in the United States sometime in the early months of 2008. Good luck and Godspeed from your Battle family Cpl Estep!
