Students at Mason Creek Middle show off spirit wear and letters they sent to an alumnus serving in the U.S. Air Force.Approximately 200 students from Mason Creek Middle School recently wrote encouraging letters to a Wolf alumnus serving in the United States Air Force.

Airman 1st Class Dion Orellana attended Mason Creek Middle School from 2014-2017 and is stationed at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.

Assistant Principal Kim Daniel said the letter-writing project was organized by community member Al Dobbs.

“He has been a mentor to Dion since he was a young child,” Daniel said. “Mr. Dobbs is a veteran who served his country and takes great pride in supporting and providing emotional support to young adults who join the military to protect and serve our country.”

Dobbs reached out to Daniel, who said she took the idea to the entire “Wolfden to have students write and express their gratitude and support to one of our own.”

Many of the letters included pictures the students drew of the American Flag. One of the students wrote, in part, “We appreciate the risk you take for not only people in Georgia but people all over the country.” Another student wrote, “Thank you for your service and what you are doing for the country and schools. You make the world change in what you do.”

In addition to the letters, the school also sent Orellana some Mason Creek Middle School spirit wear as part of the care package.
