Great JobThe Class of 2018 and 2015 teamed up to Plant a Sapling from the OKC Survivor Tree. KFOR, KWTV and Telemundo came out to Grant Thursday afternoon to record this wonderful adventure of USG'S Link Crew members and the freshmen class.  The tree is planted close to the USG cannon.  The Oklahoma History teachers shared the story of the OKC Bombing 20 years ago with their Oklahoma History Classes and the Link Crew students under the direction of Melissa Smith and Susan Turpen also did the same.  Link Crew Members then went into the OK History/Geography classes and shared what Oklahoma Standard means.  Each Student was asked to write a goal for that week  that addressed kindness, honor and service. Here is the link from KFOR about the planting of the Survivor Tree Sapling: http://kfor.com/2015/04/24/growing-power-as-students-plant-survivor-tree-sapling-lessons-take-root/
