On Wednesday Nov. 26, Mr. Scott Bidwell’s seventh period Algebra class was continuing as any normal class day would for junior Logan Weed. However to Logan’s surprise, the class ended with a shocker he never saw coming. His brother, Jordan Weed, had returned home for the holidays.
The surprise started when Assistant Principal Mrs. Laurie Kantz interrupted the class and said, “I think there’s someone here you’d like to see.” In the doorway stood Logan’s older brother, Jordan. Jordan had been released from the Shaw Air Force Base located in South Carolina where he is an Air Traffic Controller with an Airman 1st Class rank. Jordan’s break from service stretched from Wednesday Nov. 26 through Monday Dec. 1, giving him time to spend with his family and close friends over the Thanksgiving holiday season.
On Tuesday Nov. 25, the day before Jordan surprised Logan at the school, Jordan called his brother to trick him into thinking he wouldn’t be able to make it for Thanksgiving. “I was surprised because I talked to him the day before and he said he wasn’t coming, but he really was in the car on his way up here at that time,” said Logan.
Logan and Jordan, along with the rest of their family, were thankful for the time they spent together. Logan said, “That was the first time I had seen him in a year and a half. I hope I can see him for Christmas, but I’m glad I got to see him on Thanksgiving.”
