Kiwanis Club honors Lyman Ward cadetsPublished 11:49am Thursday, December 13, 2012
Cadets from Lyman Ward Military Academy joined the Dadeville Kiwanis Club last Thursday for a special holiday meal.
Academy President Lt. Col. (Ret) John Coulter spoke to the club about the cadets and the school, calling it “counter cultural.”
“The cadets at Lyman Ward are a great bunch of young men,” Coulter said. “We are, not in name only, a Christian military school … When we talk about character, we mean it in the Christian sense.”
Several cadets stood up and shared their stories about the academy.
“This school was meant for something,” said Cadet Nicklus Black. “It’s for people who are trying to get their lives right.”
Secretary/treasurer Betty Hayes said she hoped the lunch showed the cadets the community’s love and pride for them.
“Children are priority No. 1 with Kiwanis Club,” Hayes said. “We will help them in any way we can.”
