By Geoffrey Ionescu Immokalee Bulletin The Honor Flight Network is a non-prot organization creating solely to honor Amer icas veterans for all their sacrices. They y veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit and reect at their memorials to honor the ser vice and sacrices of themselves and their friends. Marvin Ruble, a Vietnam Veteran, the Commander of the VFW in LaBelle and the 1st Vice of the American Legion in La Belle was honored by being selected to be on the Collier Honor Flight, Saturday, Oc tober 20. Together with 75 other Veterans, Marvin Ruble ew to Washington to visit the monuments. It was a good, solemn thing for me, Marvin says, at rst I was a little reluctant because I dont feel like a hero, my broth ers that gave their lives are the real heroes. The heroes are on that wall in Washington, those are the real ones. I even got the see the White House and the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown soldier, that was very impressive, Marvin explains. I was stationed in Germany rst but asked for a transfer to Vietnam. My older brothers had been there and I didnt want Marvin Ruble joins Collier Honor Flight By Jennifer L. Kupiec Specialist, Communications & Community Engagement Collier County Public Schools School safety is something that has been top of mind for all of us here at CCPS this school year and for our families at home. We are grateful for the partnerships that we have with our local law enforcement part ners and our rst responders. They protect our schools, volunteer in our classrooms, and serve as role models for our youth. To our youngest of students, these rst respond ers are like heroes. They see them ght res, rescue those injured, and many times serve as a trusted adult in times of need. So you can imagine the excitement on the faces of our Village Oaks Elementary pre-kindergarten students when they got to meet some of those rst responders live and in person! Fireghters from the Immokalee Fire Department visited the school last week and made quite the impression on our little ones. These local heroes reviewed re safety tips and students were able to see the inner workings of a real live re truck. They also were able to get a look at the safety equip ment the reghters use in an emergency. Everyone at CCPS would like to give a big thank you to Lt. Hughes and Lt. Sumeralls along with reghters Neaudette, Escalan te, Rookard, and Manssuer. The Immoka lee Fire Department has bravely served the community since 1953. They currently have three stations strategically placed through out the 234 square mile area and continue to protect and serve this great community Immokalee Fire Department visits Village Submitted photo/ Jennifer L. Kupiec Members of the Immokalee Fire Department show students inside a re truck. See Ruble Page 2 By Robert Spano Special to the Immokalee Bulletin For many teenagers in Immokalee, their only experience with college is what theyve seen on TV or in movies monotonous pro fessors lecturing from a crowded auditori um, students packing football stadiums on game day, and fraternity or sorority parties that get out of control. Thats not the reality, but how would stu dents know otherwise? Since 2007, students in Guadalupe Cen ters Tutor Corps Program have been granted opportunities to attend pre-college summer experiences to help bridge the gap between high school and college. In 2017, thanks to generous supporters Charles and Bunny Salisbury, this program was expanded to in clude an increased number of students and was formally named the E.G. Salisbury Tutor Corps Summer Academy. This summer, the program sent 25 Immokalee High School students on expense-paid, pre-college sum mer experiences where they lived on cam pus and participated in academic programs ranging from one to six weeks in duration. Students recently gathered with their mentors and Guadalupe Center staff and board members to share their rst college experiences through PowerPoint presenta tions. The evening began with the students popping up out of their seats to declare their many rsts rst time on an airplane, rst time on a college campus, rst time doing their own laundry, rst time away from home. Junior Christal Hidalgo took her rst ight to reach the University of Missouri, and emerged from a second session at the University of Florida certied in CPR. Senior Karen Reyes Santos spent three weeks at Brown University, getting an exclusive look at new software programs being developed in the eld of neuroscience. She joked with the audience that she could now read MRIs and perform the card tricks she had learned. This experience is one that Ill treasure forever and never forget, Santos said.
