Local schools honor veterans with joint assembly

Liberty High School students will be participating in a Veterans Day program at 1:30 p.m. Friday at the high school, 1 Leopard Way.

The students later broke out into groups meeting with each veteran to hear about their experience one-on-one.

The Highland County Veterans Honor Guard conducted the posting of the colors at the event, and the Hillsboro High School band performed the national anthem, as well as the rallying songs of each military branch.

On Nov. 10, Antwerp Local School recognized Veterans Day.

"We wanted students to take a more active role as this is part of their leadership training and development", said Lt. Col. Erik Pettyjohn, Air Force (retired), who leads the JROTC program. "We couldn't have done a lot of this without their support".

The high school invited about 150 veterans to the event. "Just seeing everyone that has come out and we're just here to thank them really". "They fought hard for us and now we can show our appreciation by honoring them here today".

"They did a great job", said Gary Edwards a veteran who served in Vietnam in 1968.

The assembly wasn't only a tribute to two dozen guests and 15 veterans in attendance, but the hour also was a classroom to educate students the importance of Veterans Day.
