Thanking and Supporting Veterans


This year on Veterans Day, the McDonogh community was invited to reflect on alumni who are veterans and to thank them for their service to our nation. Students in kindergarten through twelfth grade, faculty, and staff wrote letters of thanks to McDonogh alumni who served our country. They also wrote to alumni currently on active duty and to our most recent graduates who are studying at U.S. military academies. More than 280 letters of gratitude were written and sent--a simple gesture for those whose service means so much.

In addition to the voluntary letter writing effort, guests from Baltimore Station, a therapeutic residential treatment program, spoke to the Upper School about ways in which McDonogh can work in partnership with them to "support veterans and others who are transitioning through the cycle of poverty, addiction, and homelessness to self-sufficiency." Currently, under the direction of Lucy Dawson, English teacher and Upper School Character Coordinator, each month, groups of 20 students visit with the veterans at Baltimore Station where they serve dinner, eat with the men, and do an activity.
