Family members of the late John Carver visited the Four Rivers Career Center on Wednesday, Dec. 7, to present school officials with funds for his scholarship.

Joyce Carver, widow, and Rachel Thacker, daughter, presented FRCC officials with a check for $4,000, which came from memorial donations. The money will be put into the John and Joyce Scholarship fund.

John Carver, 80, passed away Friday, Oct. 14, 2016, in Washington.
During his career, Carver was employed by the School District of Washington at the Four Rivers Vocational Technical School as a guidance counselor, and later taught as a substitute teacher for the SDOW.

The first scholarship at the Four Rivers Career Center was established in the name of John and Joyce Carver in 2015.

While counseling and teaching, John worked with six decades of area students. He was an adjunct professor at East Central College. He was a member of the Optimist Club, where he served as former president and eastern Missouri representative.

Carver was an international educators correspondent and traveled to Russia in 1988 to introduce education. He was an FFA facility advisor and selected as Ambassador of the Year. He was an educator trainee for the U.S. Marine Corps Enlisted Professional Military Education training program. He served his country honorably as a member of the U.S. Army.
Among his survivors are his wife, Joyce Carver; three daughters, Krista Carver, Lisa Carver McDonald and husband Bryan, and Rachel Thacker.

(Warren County Record Story)

Students at Marthasville Elementary School are taking on a challenge to help send two veterans on an upcoming Honor Flight.

Honor Flight is a nonprofit program designed to send as many veterans as possible to Washington, D.C., free of charge, to visit national war memorials honoring their service during World War II, the Korean and Vietnam wars.

Veterans are offered the trips and tours which are paid for through donations.

Marthasville Elementary Counselor Cindy Speer explained the opportunity students have to help veterans participate in Honor Flight during the recent Veterans Day assembly.

Speer said the original goal is to raise $500, but she would like to shoot for $1,000. As part of the students’ Positive Behavior Support program, they will be able to choose Honor Flight instead of a behavior reward.

When a student shows good behavior, Speer said they earn tickets that can be spent at the school store. She said the tickets are worth about 10 cents each. She is encouraging the 200 students at Marthasville Elementary to donate 25 tickets each in lieu of purchasing something for themselves.

The community also is encouraged to donate to the program.

Recognizing the 75th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, students in grades 3-6 at Augusta Elementary gathered for a learning session and discussion on the event.

Dec. 7, 1941, “A Date Which Will Live in Infamy,” was Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, which began World War II.

On Wednesday, Dec. 7, the Augusta Elementary students were shown an informational video on Pearl Harbor. At 11:55 a.m., the exact time (central time) when the attack began, the students watched President Franklin Delano Roosevelt address Congress, which took place on the day after the attack, Dec. 8, 1941.

Within an hour of FDR’s speech, Congress passed a formal declaration of war against Japan and officially brought the U.S. into World War II. The address is one of the most famous of all American political speeches.

Augusta Elementary Principal Mary Robertson then spoke to the students about the Pearl Harbor attack and also asked questions, which the students answered.
