Students from 9 high schools including 7 JROTCs were present at the Lincolnton Citizens Center to listen to speeches made by the 3 Medal of Honor recipients. The recipients talked to the young women and men about goal-setting, lift-time efforts, being a positive asset to their communities and country.   Students were allowed to ask questions at the end, get a photograph and autographs. Everyone there was extremely motivated by these heroic men at the conclusion of the event.
