Vandergriff Elementary School welcomed and celebrated our U.S. military veterans during a school assembly today. Many of the veterans attending are relatives of current students or Vandergriff staff members. The assembly also remembered Sgt. Harry Vandergriff, who served with honor and distinction in World War II, and for whom the school is named. Following the war, he became a teacher for the Fayetteville Public Schools and retired in 1982 as superintendent.
