Members of AGA Nation teamed up with the National Guard to bring an inspirational assembly to Greater Latrobe. They discussed topics such as loyalty, courage, and selfless service. They also encouraged students to stay active and stay determined to achieve their goals. Along with the inspiration, they also brought an exciting show full of dangerous BMX tricks.
