OMSD’s Nelson Favela receives Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Award

On Tuesday, September 17, 2019, members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Post 12034 “Band of Brothers” La Verne, attended the District-wide SPED Staff “Welcome Back” at Del Norte. The VFW presented our very own, Nelson Favela, with their “Post Teacher’s Award.”

The VFW is concerned with the education of America’s youth. VFW and its Auxiliary have developed a slate of programs dedicated to this endeavor. The VFW’s Citizenship Education program stimulates interest in America’s history, traditions, institutions, civic responsibility, Flag etiquette and patriotism. VFW wants to identify and recognize America’s best educators who instill a sense of national pride in students with a Teachers Award.

On behalf of Post 12034 “Band of Brothers” La Verne, Nelson Favela, Director II, Special Education, was presented this long overdue VFW Post Teachers Award.

Congratulations Nelson!
