Bush MS Appreciates Our Military!

Bush MS appreciates Our Military!

Over 100 active duty, retired military, military veterans, and their Bush students, were recognized at the school’s Military Appreciation Breakfast in September. Each year, the Bush PTA holds this event in order to honor and recognize those in our Bush community who serve or have served our country.

While enjoying breakfast, attendees heard a captivating and entertaining presentation by Bush parent, Lieutenant Colonel (LTC), Scott Blackwell, Chief of Anesthesiology at San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC). LTC Blackwell spoke about the need for commitment over compliance in one’s work. He shared that, “only through commitment can we truly succeed and thus help others succeed in life.” He tied this aspiration to one’s commitment to our families, schools, work, military, and our nation. 

LTC Blackwell also presented a commemorative military coin to Bush’s Principal, Gary Comalander. These coveted military coins are traditionally presented by Officers to those whose work surpasses mere compliance and demonstrates true commitment. LTC Blackwell recognized Comalander’s commitment to the students and families of Bush Middle School.

The Bush staff and PTA were honored to show our appreciation to our military and their students!
