Students in the Peer Leadership Program at Weatherbee Elementary had the honor of meeting Mr. John Arnett, a former Marine, police officer, and teacher. He encouraged the students by sharing how he grew up, fought in Vietnam, and then served as a police officer in various states before retiring. He told students not to get involved in gangs and to keep their noses in the books! Every month, the students get together at lunch and are motivated by successful African American male role models. Featured with Mr. Arnett are Weatherbee’s Administration and the two young women responsible for the program, Mrs. Oge and Dr. Nelson.
