The QCUSD Governing Board and staff would like to recognize active military and veteran service men and women, for their sacrifice and commitments made to our country, by approving a Military Admission Benefit.

Together as a community, the school board and schools recognize and remember the brave men and women who continue to give and have given their lives for our freedom.
Queen Creek Unified School District Governing Board approved that all active-duty military and veterans plus one guest will receive free admission to school athletics and waived ticket fees for all Queen Creek Performing Arts Center events.

The military pass provides all active military and veterans, plus one guest, free admission to regular season home athletics at Newell Barney Middle School and Queen Creek High School. In addition, the military pass allows all active military and veterans to receive waived ticket fees with ticket purchase, for Queen Creek Performing Arts Center events.
The Queen Creek Performing Arts Center will also host military appreciation discounts for one Centerstage series event and one Family Theatre event, during the 2015-216 show season. All active and veteran military personnel, plus one guest, receive a 50 percent discount on tickets.

Symbolically accepting this benefit, on behalf of all active military and veterans, the board recognized during the Nov. 10 board meeting, the Martens family. Their son Nathan Martens, was a young man who grew up in the Queen Creek area, was a Queen Creek High School graduate, and a U.S. Navy corpsman, who gave his life for his country in Iraq in 2005.
To honor Nathan, the Nathan Martens Memorial Scholarship was established through the Queen Creek Schools Education Foundation. This $3,000 scholarship is awarded based on athletics, community involvement, service, leadership, character, and academic achievement.

The Queen Creek Independent is mailed each month to 35,000 homes.
