The Broward County Association of Student Councils will make a special check presentation from Broward students to Honor Flight in the amount of $26,000 at the School Board meeting on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, at 1:15 p.m. The students launched their mission to raise funds to send World War II and Korean War veterans to Washington D.C. on the Spring Honor Flight from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport at the February 18th School Board meeting.
Honor Flight is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices.  The organization transports the heroes to Washington D.C. to visit and reflect at war memorials.  Top priority is given to senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with other veterans who may be terminally ill.
