Area students thank veterans

“Thank you, Veterans” was the theme at Hodgesville Elementary School on Nov. 7, when 20 local veterans were recognized for their service to our country.

In addition, more than 40 past and present military members were honored with their photos in a musical slideshow and on a Wall of Honor.

The entire student body gathered in the gym and sang “You Are Our Heroes” under the direction of Dawn Hymes, music teacher.

Each of the 139 students presented the veterans with a small token of their appreciation for serving in the United States military. The fourth- and fifth-grade chorus and show choir performed additional songs to say “thank you.”

The veterans enjoyed refreshments and time to reminisce at the conclusion of the program.

The students and staff of Hodgesville Elementary School would like to once again say, “Thank You for all you have done and continue to do.”
