GREENSBORO, N.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Walker (NC-06) honored Rockingham County’s 1SG(R) David Bray as the Sixth District Community Hero of the Month for February, 2017.
 
Each month, Rep. Walker awards a constituent, business, or organization in his district for displaying extraordinary acts of service and for making a difference in the lives around them.
 
Bray is the Senior Army Instructor at Morehead High School in Eden, NC. He retired from the U.S. Army after 20 years of service, and has been a JROTC instructor for ten years. He is also a Youth Minister at Word of Life Tabernacle Church. Of special note is that Bray’s students contacted Congressman Walker and nominated him for this award. 

“I have multiple older siblings who were also cadets in this program," student Destiny Fish said. "I have witnessed firsthand how caring and selfless Bray truly is. He impacted each of our lives in a different way.  I truly believe that each and every one of his students would say he deserves this honor!”  
 
“Bray is a prime example of living a life of service to others, whether it was serving in our nation’s military or shaping today’s young people to become citizens of character, purpose, and honor,” Walker said. “I extend my thanks to him for his many years of service to the community of Eden and beyond."
 
Bray was presented with a certificate and a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol.  Below is an image showing Bray with some of his students:
