Veterans Day

I am so proud to work in a school that honors our history as a nation, the service of our veterans and current military members, as well as emergency responders.

Yesterday, we had a special service organized by Mr. Lewis, our high school history teacher, to honor veterans.  It was a touching service and I am reminded again about the blessings I enjoy every day thanks to many men and women who have served our country.

Our speaker yesterday, Dr. HM Snodgrass, not only serves our school as Board President, but has served our country in the Army.  He spoke of his time in the military and his service in the Vietnam War.  Mrs. Heather French Henry was here and led our National Anthem.  The ROTC from Franklin County High School was here and did a presentation of colors and a rifle demonstration. 

Thank you, veterans, for your service.  We appreciate your service and for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.  We are also reminded of Christ, who made the ultimate sacrifice for our sins and our freedom from sin!
