Sen. George S. Logan and Rep. Charles Ferraro on May 16 joined area educators and state officials for a ceremony at Hamden Middle School to announce the “Exemplary Veterans Education Program”.  The program was created through a 2016 state law to provide students with the better opportunity to learn about the contributions of veterans.  To support schools that want to participate in the program, the State Department of Education (www.sde.ct.gov) will post materials online over the summer, including sample lesson plans, ideas for projects, and a contact list for veterans’ organizations across the state.
