Merrill Students Honor Local Veterans With Freedom Pens

Apr 6, 2017

A Merrill Middle School teacher has come up with a unique project not just for his students, but for the community and its veterans. WXPR’s Miranda Vander Leest has that story…

Pete McConnell has a goal to make 100 pens for the May flight and they’ve made nearly 90 so far. Veterans will receive a certificate with their custom-made pen identifying the student manufacturer. The pens will also be  labeled with the materials used and when it was created.
