After being called to duty in Afghanistan, a teacher returns to duty in New Deal.
Rocky Upchurch returned to work Monday, not as a Sergeant, but as a math and science teacher at New Deal High School. Upchurch has been in Afghanistan for the past 15 months, and the school honored his return with a special reception Monday afternoon.
"I hope everybody all the guys who went with me deserve something like this to welcome home and for the work. It is an honor and I thank everybody for their support," said Upchurch.
Upchurch has also served in Iraq and Bosnia.
