Emerald Coast Middle School's Patriot Club is proud and happy to donate $1.000.00 to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.  Receiving the check is Zane Holscher, representative of the Special Operation Warrior Foundation who coordinates the Destin Beach Ultra Run.  The Special Operation Warrior Foundation gives financial support to families of fallen heroes who have served our country.  Among many other things, the Foundation ensures children, who have lost a parent in battle, are able to attend college after high school graduation. The ECMS Patriot Club, with Ms. Britton as advisor, had 25 members this year. The Patriot Club raised monies throughout the 2018-19 school year by holding two school dances and a bake sale/yard sale.  The ECMS Patriot Club exists to honor all those who love and serve our country, and feel honored to support the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.  Submitted by Karen Wright
