Naturalization Ceremony at Harvey Oaks

Harvey Oaks Students Play Role in "Once in a Lifetime Event"

Barbara and Alan Douglas have lived in the United State for over 20 years. Originally moving from Canada for Alan’s job, Barbara quickly found a home at Millard Public Schools.

The Harvey Oaks health para and her husband have been on a long journey to citizenship.
After “massive amounts of paperwork then waiting,” the day finally came to take their Oath of Allegiance. 

Barbara and Alan were happy to share their big moment with the students of Harvey Oaks.
"These children are more than just the kids I work with, and to have them witness this once in a lifetime event and to be able to understand what citizenship…what they were born into naturally, they don’t get this. I wanted them to be able to witness this happening” Barbara said.
