U.S. troops stationed in Kuwait show off Christmas stockings made by Harriman Middle School P-3 Club members. The students sent the stockings and Christmas cards to the troops through the Adopt A Soldier Program.

The school’s Positive Peer Pressure — or P-3 — Club decided to do something special for U.S. troops who are stationed overseas and do not receive a lot of mail or contact from home.

Kris Hontz of the Roane County Anti-Drug Coalition introduced the students to the Adopt A Soldier program.

The students made Christmas stockings and sent them and Christmas cards to troops stationed in Kuwait.

Club members also sent Christmas cards to Roane Medical Center patients and residents of area nursing homes.

The P-3 Club, sponsored by the Roane County Anti-Drug Coalition, is moderated by School Counselor Yvette Reeder.

The club is a group of students who lead by example, activities and initiatives that present positive messages to their peers and school community.
