On December 17th, our Hawk Battalion assisted in the 2022 Wreaths Across America! Through the Wreaths Across America Ceremony, our battalion is offered the opportunity to help out the community while also appreciating our Veterans and those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. The difference this event makes every year, for both our community and beyond, can only be described as nothing short of awe-inspiring. Thank you to every volunteer that attended, not just from our Battalion but also from the community, and to Wreaths Across America for this opportunity to honor all veterans!
On December 3rd, our Hawk Battalion Color Guard marched the colors through the 10th annual Light Up Viera Parade! The parade kicked off with a magnificent firework show and our cadets tenaciously marched the colors around the newly drawn 1.5 mile course! Thank you cadets Orlandi, Turney, Walter, Stevenson, and everyone who participated in the 2022 Light Up Viera Parade for making this year's parade even greater than last year!
In the morning of December 3rd, our Hawk Battalion's Male Raider team placed 3rd in the 5k and 5th place overall! Congratulations to cadets Campbell, Curtis, Ayers, Hoffman, Hafele, Valentin, Crandall, Liao, Itaborahy, DeForest, Trundle, and Santiago for your hard work leading into the successful state meet! Our battalion could not be more proud for our Raider teams' phenomenal 2022 season! Moreover, a big thank you to our VHS Battalion Booster Club, these gratuitous parents played a big role in the functionality of our Battalion and Raider teams! We could not thank you enough!
On the 19th, Viera High School hosted the Space Coast Thanksgiving Basket Brigade! Through the help provided by community volunteers and our cadet volunteers, several families were able to receive a Thanksgiving meal this year! Thank you to all of the volunteers for being able to support such a successful food drive, and thank you to the Space Coast Basket Brigade for making this possible!
