Covington teacher gets a surprise welcome home from Iraq

COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - A Holmes High School art teacher got a surprise from his school Thursday morning when he received a welcome home from Iraq in the Holmes High School gym.

John Bradley, a member of the Army Reserves, had been a teacher at Holmes for seven years when he was deployed for Iraq last May.

Bradley believed he was going to the gym to speak to students about his duties as a teacher. He was surprised to see the school there to honor his service in Iraq.

The rally was filled with Holmes High School students and faculty, board members, and members of the community.
