General Ritchie


General Steve Ritchie came to speak at our Veteran's Day Assembly...it was quite an honor to meet him. Honestly, before I was in contact with "his people" I had no idea who he was, really. Then I figured it out after I googled him. He's pretty famous in the Air Force world, and also very ahem...Republican...his speech was 45 minutes, which is pretty long for high school kids to listen to, and like I said, full of Republican rhetoric. However, he meant well and cared enough to stop by our school and mentioned that AHS was the best audience of h.s. kids he's ever spoken for and that our kids gave him hope for the future.
