Local Author Visits CIS

Michele Spry, local business owner and author from Columbia, MO, visited with the 3rd and 5th graders at CIS on Wednesday to discuss her experiences with Veterans and shared some stories.  Her book, A Trip to Remember, is about a WWII veteran that is going on a Hero Tour.  It is not only a story about honor, respect, and friendship, but pays tribute to veterans and the Central Missouri Honor Flight, in which Michele Spry is involved in.  The story is based on a recollection of Lt. Col. Ferrill A. Purdy, a WWII Marine Fighter Pilot.  Special thanks to Ms. Spry for spending time with us as well as donating two books to our CIS library!
