Beginning in the mid-1980s, April was designated as the time to recognize military kids for their sacrifice and bravery.
Mr. Frank T. Brogan, Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education, was in attendance at Lackland ISD's Purple Up Parade. This event demonstrates our appreciation of military children who also serve through the sacrifices made by their family in support of the nation. Mr. Brogan had the opportunity to visit numerous classrooms and engage with students in the innovative programs within the school system. He heard first hand of the successes and challenges that educators and students face in today’s learning environment. He will also be showcasing the partnership programs with the installation along with the STEM program.
