The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Vicksburg District has signed adoption certificates for its three adopted schools under the “Adopt a School” (AAS) program. The District’s AAS committee along with its Commander, Col Jeffrey R. Eckstein, met with the principals, faculty and staff of Vicksburg High, Warren Central Intermediate, and Sherman Avenue Elementary schools for this annual meeting.
The AAS’s annual plan for each school is executed through volunteerism from team members of the District’s AAS committee and other Corps team members. Each plan outlines specific goals to be achieved through the partnership during the school year.
The AAS Program fosters a better understanding of the community's school system, strengthens and improves school programs and curricula, and creates a sense of personal involvement and interaction between organizations and schools.
