Col. Fred Cherry Middle School is named after an Air Force fighter pilot, whose plane was downed by enemy fire in 1965 during the Vietnam War.  
Cherry was the first and highest rankinCol. Fred Cherryg black U.S. officer held as a prisoner of war. Porter Halyburton, a young Navy flier, was a white southerner thrown in as Cherry’s cellmate.  Their captors hoped close quarters would inflame American-bred racial tensions and break both men.  Instead, American integrity and honor flourished, and as Cherry was nursed back to health, a friendship grew strong.  After seven years as a prisoner of war, Cherry was released from captivity in 1973.
