EAST Participates in Video Conference with Soldiers


Mena Middle School EAST had the privilege of participating in a video conference with Major Beau Stricklin.  He spoke to Mena EAST students earlier in the school year as part of their Veteran’s project. Since his first visit, he has moved to Stuttgart, Germany where he is stationed with the Army. The students were excited to visit with him about his time so far in Germany. Mr. Stricklin shared with the students about his trip to Germany, the time change there, the scenery of the area he lives in, their currency, the weather, transportation, along with different places outside of Germany he has visited in his short amount of time there. Mr. Stricklin’s son, Elvis, was able to sit in during our conference too. The students gained new knowledge about Germany while visiting with one of our former guest veterans.
