Elder's Support the Troops Club shipped care packages to Elder graduates who are currently serving in our nation's military.  The origin of this practice dates all the way back to when Elder teacher Mr. Mike Honold had care packages shipped to grads who were serving in Vietnam so that they knew that they had the support of their family, friends, and the Elder community back home.

In 2007-2008, Matt Brannon and Ben Combs, both from the Class of 2008, rejuvenated the practice by sending packages to troops over the holidays.  Brannon returned to Elder in 2012 to see the club get back up-and-running, and so it has ever since.

Many thanks to current Elder teacher Mr. Justin Quatman who oversees the activities of the club!
