Kane Seniors Qualify For SSG Kenneth R. VanGiesen Patriot Award in 2017

SSG Kenneth R. VanGiesen Patriot Award
2017 Report
The purpose of this Award is to honor graduating Kane High Seniors who have chosen to serve their Country by enlisting in the United States Armed Forces. About 1 percent of our population of over 300 million commits to Serve and Protect us and we are honored to recognize these enlistees for this.

This year, 2017, I am proud to report that of 96 graduating seniors, we recognized 11 enlisting in the United States military. Seven of these have signed contracts and were awarded $500 each. The remaining four were instructed on what procedure they must take to receive their award. As you can see the 7 enlistees amounted to $3500 with the potential of 4 more completing their contracts bringing our expenses this year to $5500. From the awards inception in 2011, we have proudly recognized 48 enlistees for a total of $24,000.00 with the possibility of four more this year making our grand total awarded to $26,000.00.

This year more than ever we are appealing to our School District communities and others to help us continue this important award. Please be generous in contributing. These young men and women are about to put their relationships on hold and their lives in jeopardy to protect you and America's sacred pledge of freedom and democracy.
