VHP: Veterans Heritage Project

About Our Club

Kreiselmeier The Veterans Heritage Project (VHP) is a club that builds connections with veterans that are part of Shadow Mountain Community and beyond. Club members will have the opportunity to have one-to-one conversations with service men and women about their heroic encounters while on duty protecting our country. Through these discussions students’ will gain valuable life-long lessons and skills. Members develop a passion for history, civics, and writing. They will develop a true understanding of the values and freedoms that we have through the sacrifices for those who have served our country.

Club members are tasked with many responsibilities that include the following: interviewing our heroic service men and women and composing written feature stories on the veteran experiences. The members become published authors by contributing their stories to the VHP’s annual hard-covered book entitled “Since You Ask”. Also, members will create video footage of interviews that will be submitted for permanent audio-visual archiving at the Library of Congress.

Students who join the club will not only connect with veterans but honor veterans and the work they do, preserve the American heritage, and develop the future leaders of America. These educational experiences merged with the veteran connections serves as a vehicle for student learning that gives students the motivation to stay school and start preparing for college and careers, while aiding in the healing of veterans.
