Veteran's Day

Happy Veteran's Day!  Riverwood Middle School is so appreciative of all those who have served our country.  We wanted to take a moment to spotlight the Veterans we have working at our school.

Mr. and Mrs. Galloway are both Career and Technical Education teachers at Riverwood Middle.  Mr. Troy Galloway teaches Computer Science classes and served in the United States Air Force from 1981 - 1990.  Mrs. Cherie Galloway teaches Business Application courses and served in the United States Air Force from 1980 - 1985.  In fact, the Air Force is where the Galloways met!

Mr. Edward Wambwa joined Riverwood this year as an Exceptional Childrens teacher.  He started serving in the Army Reserves in 2019 and continues to serve today.  We are grateful to have Mr. Wambwa as part of the Riverwood family.
