Woodson Elementary School Assistant Principal Terra O. Taylor recently said, "The Million Father March is such a great way to introduce the community to our school and begin to develop relationships with our community partners. From the Million Father March, we have been able to have community partners come back to our school to participate in various events throughout the year. It brings a joy to the community partners and allows our students to see professionals in uniform giving back to their community as well as make a connection to possible careers. Interactions during these events build relationships that create lasting impacts on our students. We love having community members partnering with us and coming into our building! It's always such a great experience for both the students as well as the community members!" Coast Guard members recently read to the students at Woodson Elementary School. The Million Father March is held in the beginning of the school year. These men and women of the Coast Guard returned recently to work with our students.
