Writer calls schools a treasure

There is a pot of gold right here in our community. There is a treasure right here at our doorstep. It is known as the Vandalia-Butler City Schools.

Education is the key to opportunity and happiness. It is the key that unlocks so many doors to the future. It is the great equalizer.

Education is something that is uniquely yours, and it is something that no one can ever take away from you. In our great country, unlike many countries around the world, EVERYONE has the opportunity to have an education. When one reads about a young girl who is shot solely because she wants to go to school, it makes one appreciate our schools even more.

I have always supported our excellent school system and will continue to do so. WE ARE AVIATORS!
