Beat Four 3rd grade Honor Student and Sassy Cat cheerleader, Kylie Cooper, had an extra special reason to cheer last Friday.
Kylie is a member of Mrs. Ashley Craven’s class. Mrs. Craven along with Principal Tommy Branch and Assistant Principal Cindy Cooper and the entire school coordinated with SGT Wilona Cooper, Kylie’s Mom, to surprise Kylie with a visit from her soldier mother.
SGT Wilnona Cooper has served as a combat medic in the U.S. Army for 5 years. She is currently stationed in South Korea with 2nd Battalion 1st Air Defense Artillery Regiment serving a one year tour. Currently both of Kylie’s parents are away on mission as her dad (SGT Durrell Mitchell) is preparing for deployment.
Kylie was surprised in the cafeteria. She had no idea her mother was coming home for a visit during her deployment. She will be home a few weeks before returning to Korea. Kylie and her classmates will never forget this special day.
