Amanda Ng Leads Vet Awareness Project In RPB

Crestwood Middle School eighth grader and National Junior Honor Society member Amanda Ng (shown above in the center) wanted to do an awareness project on the Fourth of July. Having been invited to so many barbeques for the Fourth of July, she complained to her mother, Sandi Ng, that “no one remembers who gives us our independence.” Her mother challenged her to make a difference. With her network of supporters, she was able to manage donations and bought hundreds of toy soldiers, yes, little GI Joe men. She made a sign and asked everyone attending the festivities in Royal Palm Beach to take a soldier home and thank him every day for our freedoms.
