Today our schools will conduct a moment of silence to participate in the National Day of Mourning for President George H.W. Bush. Our PVHS History Club has provided a message to be read to the high school students and staff and we are sharing with our community:
On Friday, November 30th, our Nation lost the 41st President of the United States.
George H.W. Bush was a World War II Veteran who served in the Navy where he completed 58 combat missions during the Japanese Campaign.
After the War, he dedicated his life to public service as a state senator, Vice President to Ronald Reagan and President of the United States.
Having lived an extraordinary life he will be most remembered for his courage, resolve, and love for America and its people.
Please take a moment to remember the life of President Bush.
Thank you to our History Club as we all remember the life and service of President Bush. At moments like this, we have an opportunity to come together to recognize our shared values and to show our gratitude and respect.
