Honoring few before the big game



(Above) The family of Charlie Carmody, beloved teacher who passed away in April 2017, lead a parade of Grand Blanc elementary school children prior to last Friday’s football game. Getting the crowd revved up are, left to right, Olivia, a GBHS sophomore, Jonathan, a senior, and their mom, Chris. Veterans were given free admission to the game. (Left) Ken West and his grandson, #16 Ethan Asperger held the coin toss. West was part of the Chosin Reservoir Campaign which U.S. historians call the “greatest evacuation movement by sea in US military history”, featuring a 193-ship armada who helped thousands of Korean refugees find sanctuary in the south.
