Palin to Speak at New Hope Graduation

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on May 13, 2014

SarahpalinstripedshirtfromcecephotoshootAs reported by WHNT19News:

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Sarah Palin, arguably one of the most well-known women in the Republican Party in the last several years, is scheduled to visit to Madison County next week.

Dr. David Copeland, Madison County Superintendent, confirms to WHNT News 19 Palin will speak at New Hope High School’s graduation ceremony.

The event is next Wednesday, May 21 at 8 p.m. at the Von Braun Center.  It is an event that requires tickets, and a limited number will be made available, Dr. Copeland said.

“What an honor for the students of New Hope High to hear such a prominent speaker as Mrs. Palin,” Dr. Copeland said.  The students got the news at school on Tuesday morning.

Palin is a former vice presidential candidate, the first Republican woman to get the party’s nomination.  She ran on the Republican ticket with Sen. John McCain in 2008.  She also served as governor of Alaska from 2006-2009.  She currently works as a political commentator and endorses various Republican candidates for state and federal office.

To maintain the integrity of New Hope’s graduation ceremony, attendance will be limited to the schools, businesses, and communities of New Hope and Owens Cross Roads that support the vision of the school and the accomplishments of the students and educators in the Madison County School District.

A limited number of tickets will be available to the community and the public on a first come, first-served basis, through Dr. Copeland’s office by email: dacopeland@madison.k12.al.us.

WHNT News 19 reached out to the Alabama Republican Party on Tuesday morning for more insight.  The staff did not confirm the appearance, but said Chairman Bill Armistead spoke with Palin recently, who indicated she selects one high school each year to visit for the commencement address.  This year, she decided to come to Alabama.  The state party said staff members were reaching out to New Hope High School for more details.   More

Gov. Palin praises familes of special needs children in Alabama

Sarah Palin told an Alabama audience Tuesday that the challenges of raising a special needs child takes a particular kind of courage, and that was a lesson that she had to learn firsthand:

Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, mentioned politics, such as the need for energy and financial independence and smaller government, when she addressed a fundraiser for the Exceptional Foundation of Baldwin County.

Much of her speech, however, centered on raising her youngest son, Trig, who has Down syndrome.

The Exceptional Foundation was established to help special needs children and adults in southwest Alabama. Many in the audience Tuesday night in the ballroom of the Marriott Grand Hotel have family members with conditions such as Trig’s.

[…]

Palin said work by groups, such as the Exceptional Foundation, that assist special needs children and adults are a blessing to people such as herself, who need help when faced with a difficult challenge.

[…]

Palin praised efforts to help Alabama communities hit by tornadoes last week.

“In those parts that were touched tragically by these storms and tornadoes, we want these folks to know that they are not alone in this time,” she said. “Americans come together in moments like this to help support and rebuild, and a good part of America shines through in times like this.”

According to WKRG-TV, Gov. Palin told the audience that she and her husband Todd would be meeting with tornado survivors Wednesday in Birmingham. Turns out she and Todd joined other Samaritan’s Purse volunteers assisting the victims of the recent tornadoes which caused so much devastation in the state.

Palins Join Samaritan’s Purse to Assist Alabama Tornado Victims

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 4, 2011

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Today, Governor and Todd Palin joined Samaritan’s Purse in assisting tornado victims in Alabama.

Here’s video footage of the Palins working hard and Governor Palin discussing the need to pray for those who have been affected by the disaster and encouraging people to donate to Samaritan’s Purse:

As posted on Samaritan’s Purse Today:

Todd Palin, four-time winner of the Iron Dog off-road snowmobile race across Alaska, along with his wife, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, joined Samaritan’s Purse volunteers to help tornado victims in Birmingham, Alabama, on Wednesday.

“I came here to work hard,” Todd said. “There’s no point in being here if you’re not going to work hard.”

After getting a safety briefing and talking with volunteers, the Palins joined a crew assisting homeowner J.L. Price. The couple helped haul off brush and debris, and with the rest of the crew, prayed with Mr. Price.

“It feels great to be working out here,” Sarah said. “I hope more people sign up with Samaritan’s Purse so they can be blessed like I am today.”

The Price home took a direct hit from a tornado and sustained extensive damage.

“It’s hard to imagine anyone surviving this,” Todd said. “What a terrifying time it must have been for them. This just really gets you.”

While going through the debris, Todd found a wooden plaque bearing the Price name and nailed it to a tree, one of the few things remaining standing on the property.

This is the third time the Palins have participated in Samaritan’s Purse relief efforts.

“I appreciate their willingness to bring hope to people in need,” Graham said.
