Honoring the Ultimate Sacrifice to Preserve our Public Safety--Answer to Wednesday's Challenge

Nebo School District lowered the Flag of the United States of America on the day of Sgt. Cory Wride’s funeral, Wednesday, February 5, 2014. Spanish Fork schools were dismissed earlier than usual for the miles-long procession of over 1,000 officers that traveled a route marked with blue ribbons and the American flags from Utah Valley University through Spanish Fork to the cemetery. Let us all remember and be grateful for all those that make the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our public safety.
