Below is an email I received from a Mt. Vernon community member.
Often times, it's not what you do on the court, but off the court, that makes a difference!
Good Afternoon Mr. Wear,
As you are aware, last evening the high school girls basketball team came to Mount Vernon for a game. After the JV game was completed approximately 6 members of the JV squad that did not dress varsity were in our commons area having some snacks after the JV game. As the varsity game was getting ready to start the commons area cleared, with the exception of these 6 young ladies. As soon as the National Anthem began to play, every single one of them stood and faced the gym door from where the anthem was being played. What a great testament to our country and to your student body to show such respect for the National Anthem! Congratulations! Solon was WELL represented last night.
Have a great day!
