S.H.O.W. was founded by Officer Allen Adams in September 2014 in the Valley Center Middle School. Officer Adams is the SRO for the Valley Center Middle School and Valley Center Intermediate School in Valley Center Kansas. Officer Adams served 14 years in the US Coast Guard and the Kansas National Guard and has been on multiple deployments throughout the two services.
The program was developed because Officer Adams knows the challenges and the conditions of the current day warrior and to recognize our Veterans and what they have done for us. The program is designed to not only give back to the Veterans but to teach and expose our youth to history they will never learn from a book.
A lot of our youth know of the Iraq and Afghanistan war Veterans but not our World War I, World War II, Korean and Vietnam Veterans and this program helps teach them to honour those Veterans and to continue to support current warriors around the world. S.H.O.W. also teaches youth about being patriotic, what the flag is about and the history of our country because of Veterans. The sacrifice’s our parents, grandparents and great grandparents made serving our country so that we could have the freedom’s we have today should not go unrecognised.
