ABC40 Honor Roll Live: Agawam High School
AGAWAM, Mass. (WGGB) – It was an early morning at Agawam High School.
Honor Roll Live hit the road once agin – this time to the home of the Brownies.
“I’m really proud of my high school right now. It’s really early in the morning and we all like to sleep, but we are happy to be here!” says student Ashley Gage.
Students were able to wake up with brownies and hot chocolate provided by Principal Steve Lemanski and staff.
The football team, celebrating their first year undefeated since 1965, showed off their orange and brown school pride.
“It’s our first time making playoffs ever! The game is tonight,” says Team Captain Anthony Caracciolo.
And most students today wore red, white, and blue. Their attire was to honor our active Military and Veterans.
Many local members of our military even joined in on the event. We were proud to welcome home an Agawam Alum, Todd Crevier, who just returned home this September.
“I’ve been in the army for 10 years, and I just got back from my second deployment in Africa,” says Crevier.
His son, a freshman at the high school, is happy to have his dad back too. “We barely got to see him and when he got home, it was like a burden was lifted,” says Isaac Crevier.
Local veterans placed a memorial outside the school Friday and Mayor Richard Cohen issued a proclamation.
“I hereby proclaim November 8, 2013 as Red, White, and Blue Day,” announced Cohen.
Just this morning, Agawam High School students raised over $500 for ‘Wreaths Across America,’ to remember and honor Veterans.
Next week, Honor Roll Live travels to the home of the Purple Knights, Holyoke High school.
