CANNON AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. -- The Military Child Education Coalition action plan was signed April 7 by Col. Scott West, 27th Fighter Wing commander and Dr. Rhonda Seidenwurm, Clovis Municipal School superintendent.
The action plan is a milestone in the continuing partnership between Cannon and Clovis Municipal Schools.
The purpose of the plan is to ease the transition of military dependant school children as they move into community schools and activities.
“I appreciate the commitment of Clovis Municipal Schools to expand opportunities for all students,” said Colonel West. “The plan required a lot of discusssion on the balance between fairness and opportunity”.
Lt. Col. James Lewis, 27th Mission Support Group deputy commander, who serves as a liaison between Cannon and Clovis Municipal Schools said Cannon is “fortunate to have such a strong relationship with the school administration. We have worked so closely in so many things,” adding that he thinks this relationship is one of the strongest in the country.
