On November 11th, Northwest Elementary held its annual Veterans Day Program. Observers gathered in the front parking lot of the school while Northwest Elementary students sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “This Land Is Your Land." High school scouts Alex Dobson and Logan Dick posted the colors.
A brief presentation was made by Wes Reynolds, a veteran who led the pledges, and Coach Jeremy Clark who spoke to the students about the history of Veterans Day, some of his experiences serving in the Navy, and how the students can honor veterans on this day. Immediately following the presentation a performance of “Taps” by Howard Payne Senior, Aaron Walling, was played on a beautiful silver trumpet.
