The students of St Mary Catholic Community School held their annual Veteran’s Day Program this Friday. Local veterans were welcomed to the school with thank you cards made by the students, before being led by a procession of Girl and Boy Scouts into the gym where the veterans were met with a roaring standing ovation. The students lifted their voices in song to sing each of the five branches of the military’s song to recognize the veterans as a part of their respective branch. The keynote address was given by retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Dan Shea. Mr. Shea delivered a captivating speech about his years of service, telling St. Mary students how his call to service began as a young Boy Scout and how those experiences led him to want to continue serving his community and country as an adult.
