The Liberty County School System is asking everyone, especially those in schools, to wear purple Friday as part of its month-long observance of April as the Month of the Military Child.
“We pledge to continue to make a difference in the lives of our military students by seeking opportunities to show our appreciation for the sacrifice of sharing their parents with the country,” Superintendent Dr. Valya S. Lee said.
It is the 30th anniversary of the month, which was first established in in 1986 by then-Defense Secretary Casper Weinberger.
A news release from the schools said a variety of activities such as programs, bulletin-board displays, banners, special morning announcements, certificates, purple decorations and wristbands honoring military students and their parents will be held at each school.
