Marine returns, surprises brother

Second grade student Samuel Griffis, received a very special Christmas gift on Dec. 21 at West Union Elementary. Sam’s older brother Jacob Griffis was met with a warm welcome from students and staff when he surprised his brother after returning home on leave from California where he is currently serving in the United States Marine Corps.
Jacob and Sam’s stepmother Jennifer Griffis is a second grade teacher at WUES and was thrilled to be joined by another son, West Union High School senior Dakota Nehus-Griffis for this special surprise. Jacob’s mother, Betty Baker, who resides in Texas is also glad to see her son back in the states.
