Veterans Day 2019
Veterans Day 2019
Juli Thompson
Tuesday, November 05, 2019

It is an honor for our students to give respect to all veterans, but especially our area veterans. All our community members are welcome to join our student body and staff as we present our 2019 Veterans Day Program. Our featured guest speaker this year is Chaplain (Ret.) Cecil Richardson. The program will include music performances under the direction of Band Director Mary Beth Behrens and Choir Director Liz Niemeyer as well as students leading the Pledge of Allegiance and other spoken pieces. Join us at 1:30pm in the High School gym on Monday, November 11th.

Additionally, we would like to keep updating our list of area and alumni veterans. Many community members and alumni have emailed updates. Please review the list below to help us add any that may be missing. We believe there are many members of our community, past and present, who are not on this list. It is our desire to never forget the service these men and women have given to their country. We hope to pass on the memory of their service to our students now and in years to come. If any information is missing, incomplete, or inaccurate, please email Juli Thompson at Thank you in advance for any help.
