During a special recognition at the October meeting of the Petal School Board, Petal High School Assistant Principal Eric Boney was welcomed back to the district after serving over a year in Afghanistan. Boney served in the U.S. Army as a Lieutenant Colonel and earned several awards, including a Bronze Star and a Combat Action Badge for his participation in the defense of his Forward Operating Base while being attacked by the enemy. He talked to the board briefly about his experiences and expressed his love of his family and his country, his faith in God, and his pride for working in the Petal School District.
