Soldiers visit third grade pen pals

-A A +A
By Bryan Marshall

Every other Williamstown Elementary student was outside enjoying the annual field day, except for Michelle Whaley’s third grade reading group.
They were inside their classroom waiting on a bigger and better surprise.
Eyes widened and smiles blossomed as two soldiers, Lt. John Benson and Lance Corporal Richard Barton, walked into the room dressed in uniform.
“They’re so anxious that I think they are in shock,” Whaley said.
The third graders had become pen pals with the soldiers throughout the school year.
