  • Honor Flight for Maynard E. Melhorn
    On Thursday, May 12th, Ms. Monica Cummings (2nd grade teacher at SVWE) and her father Maynard E. Melhorn, SP4 were surprised with an all expense paid Honor Flight trip to Washington, D.C.  

    Ms. Cummings began hosting a Veteran's Day program each November in her classroom many years ago.  This later turned into a school-wide Veteran's Day assembly planned in coordination with Mr. Martin (SVMS history teacher).  In an attempt to return our great gratitude for her efforts to honor the Community and family veterans of her students over the years, the faculty and staff of Sangamon Valley Community Unit School District have arranged for Ms. Cummings to escort her father on the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.  Mr. Maynard E. Melhorn served in the United States Army in Vietnam from 1967-1969.  

    On May 29, 2004, the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. was dedicated to the 16.1 million men and women who had served our country during the war, including the 405,000 who gave their lives in the name of freedom.  The mission of the Honor Flight is to provide veterans of WWII, Korea, and Vietnam with a chance to view the National Monuments in Washington, D.C.  As a thank you for his service, and her dedication to teaching us to honor veterans, Mr. Melhorn and Ms. Cummings will take this trip free of charge in the Spring of 2017.  Mr. Melhorn will be one out of over 160,000 veterans to have been gifted this Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.

    Mrs. Joan Bortolon, President of the Land of Lincoln Honor Flights was present to award Ms. Cummings and Mr. Melhorn with certificates of appreciation.
