On Nov. 9, 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 Aaron Pulley, Jon Tobias, and Robert Dick posted the colors.

A brief presentation was made by Eagle Scout Aaron Pulley that told the history and purpose of Veterans Day, which was followed by a performance of “Taps” by Howard Payne sophomore, Megan Irwin.

“It’s a special program that we put together to honor our veterans,” said Northwest Elementary Principal, Candace Wilson. “Our kids did a wonderful job, and it’s important for them to remember how lucky we are to live in this country.”
