FR Class Receives Szwydek Memorial Trip Donation
The Forbes Road Class of 2011 was the fortunate recipient of a $2,000 check last week to fund its upcoming trip to Arlington National Cemetary in honor of fallen Marine Lance Cpl. Steven Szwydek. The money represents two separate $1,000 donations from VFW Post #655 of Mc- Connellsburg and former Marine and local resident George Cutchall. According to history teacher Jeremy Hollinshead, the annual junior trip scheduled for March 12 will include a trip to the cemetery and gravesite of Szwydek, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Holocaust Museum and the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. On hand for the check presentation on February 24 were (left to right): George Cutchall; John Warsing of VFW Post #655; Class of 2011 President Kinsey Cutchall; Class of 2011 Vice President Stephanie Worthing; and Hollinshead, who noted what a blessing it is to have people from within the community step in and fill the gaps in situations such as the annual memorial trip.
