REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Mount Vernon High School Football Team's Wreaths Across America Page.
On May 27, 2019 at 5 pm, MVHS Football will be helping Cathy Powers to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes. The ceremony will begin at 5 pm and will be followed by running 7 laps around Mount Vernon High School's track in honor of Bryce Powers and to Remember, Honor, and Teach for all of our veterans.
Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths, running with us at Mount Vernon High School, and joining us on Wreaths Day on December 14 at Arlington National Cemetery.
