Teacher's pen-pal former student and solider

April 21, 2003

Lee County-- Lee County teacher is writing to a former student and solider at war.

Fourth grade teacher Vickie Davis has a new pen-pal--PFC Joseph Johnson. This is a picture of Johnson when he was a middle school student at Sherwood Christian Academy where she taught him.

Davis decided to have her Twin Oaks Elementary class write her former student after she saw a story about him air on our newscast, "Well you know you expect them to grow up. I still picture him as a 7th and 8th grader but I'm really proud of him, he's a grown man now and he is protecting our country and I'm proud of him."

The letters will be sent out this week to Kuwait, where Johnson is stationed.
