 Congrats to Ms. Hamilton!



Melinda Hamilton, a seventh-grade social studies teacher at River Bend Middle School in Claremont, recently received a national award from the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Ms. Hamilton is the recipient of this year’s Smart/Maher VFW National Citizenship Education Teacher Award for the middle grades. Before reaching the national level, Ms. Hamilton was also named the regional and state recipient. She was selected for the national honor from entries submitted by VFW posts throughout the United States and overseas for her ongoing commitment to promoting civic responsibility and patriotism in the classroom. VFW Post 5305 and the Ladies Auxiliary in Conover sponsored Ms. Hamilton in the contest.

As a national recipient, Ms. Hamilton receives a $1,000 donation to River Bend Middle School as well as an all-expense-paid trip to Pittsburgh to participate in the 2015 VFW National Convention, July 18-22. Ms. Hamilton’s father, a Vietnam Veteran, will accompany her to the convention this summer where she will receive her award. Hamilton credits her father’s military service for being the inspiration behind her emphasis on patriotism both in and out of the classroom.
