Honoring Our Veterans


Ashlee Burns, Managing Editor

In honor of those who have served our country, Veteran’s Day displays will be set up in the cafeteria. The display areas will include names of faculty and staff members that have served in any branch of military.

Among the displays will be a white table as a symbol of remembrance for the fallen, missing, or held captive during their time of service. The table is decorated with symbolic pieces to express the sorrow of families and the hope that the missing will one day return.

“It’s one of those things, it’s needs to be to be more than just wearing red, white, and blue,” Charlene Dietrich said. “We say the pledge everyday, but does it mean anything to the students?”

Students and teachers can include their relatives or friends that have served in any branch of military by sending their veterans name, branch of service, rank, and anything special they would like to be known to Mrs. Dietrich in room 507.

“We have a list of the staff and their family members who have served,” Dietrich said. “We’re all attached to at least one veteran, and we’d like to include students family members and friends too.”
