Veterans Day 2017

main17 18

 

The annual Veterans Day assembly, produced by the Scott City Middle School, took place November 10, 2017. The assembly, which was attended by every student in the Scott City school district, honored our country's veterans and provided special recognition for those veterans able to attend. The assembly featured moving patriotic speeches from students, music from the band, a Veterans Day speech from former Marine and Scott City graduate Josh Schuenemeyer, and captivating singing performances by the Elementary Honor Choir, including "Salute to the Armed Forces", during which each veteran was encouraged to stand during his or her branch's song.

Each veteran in attendance was given the opportunity to stand up before everyone, and give his or her name, as well as when and where he or she served. We thank the Middle School for their patriotic assembly, and Scott City Schools would like to thank all of our veterans who have served to protect our freedoms. Thank you very much!
