Free to Be program reminding students what it means to be an American

Posted: Updated:
POLLOK, TX (KTRE) -

Friday students at Central ISD were reminded what it really means to be an American.

The Free to Be program made its first stop in Angelina County today encouraging young people not to take their freedom for granted.

Officials have been traveling across the U.S. since 2006 teaching students why it's important stay in school.

 Students were shown a video then heard first hand from a military veteran about the advantages they fight for.

 "They are in charge of America, soon they'll be voting, they'll be electing our leader, they'll be our leaders and they know that when they leave our assembly. It wakes them up, it's a wake up call for young people at the most important time in their life," said Larry Tooker, Founder/Director, Free to Be Program

 The free to be presentations continue next week in Huntington, Zavalla and Lufkin.
