Liberty Fest honors area veterans
Santa Fe College hosted an early celebration of our veterans this weekend. WUFT-FM’s Sarah Samuels says this second annual celebration brought family fun and information to a patriotic festival.
In addition to honoring veterans, Liberty Fest recognized many area students through the Flags for Schools program. The program, sponsored by the Santa Fe College Collegiate Veterans Society, selects students to serve as school ambassadors and bring a flag to the school’s principal.
