Medal of Honor recipients arriving in crowd at LHS Campus

Lawrence had two very special guests arrive by Black Hawk helicopter and land in Lancer centerfield today. Both Army veterans are recipients of the Medal of Honor, the highest military decoration that may be awarded to American servicemen and women for acts of valor. Army Sergeant Sammy Davis and Army Sergeant Major Matt Williams were flown in to Lawrence to speak with students and staff and share their experiences. Davis is a veteran of the Vietnam War and Williams served in Afghanistan. We thank them for their service and were honored by their visit to Lawrence. Click here for photos of the event.
