Veterans and Students Come Together to Honor Service To Country

December 04,2015

Students, staff, teachers and members of the community gathered in the Valley School gymnasium to honor Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) on Tuesday, November 10th. Boy Scout Troop 989, including Paideia High School students John Selle, Joe Phillips and Andrew Clark, opened the event with the 13 Folds of the Flags ceremony, a tribute to not only our veterans but also to the mothers and fathers of this country. Students presented selected essays responding to the prompt, ‘Why is America your favorite country?’ with words of thankfulness to veterans who have fought for freedom, protection and opportunities for those living in our country today.
