Vanden High School students got a thrill Friday with a special show put on by the U.S. Army Parachute Team, the Golden Knights.
It came together with the guidance of Athletics Director Matthew Bidou. He noted that 1,600 students came out for the event on the football field.
“I wanted to get everybody together to do something different,” he said. “I want all the kids to have a good time and have a smile on their faces.”
It took about three weeks to get everything organized by the retired Army veteran. The students chose if they wanted to attend the event; it was not mandatory.
