Korean War veterans were commemorated Oct. 6, during first hour at the fourth Veterans Day assembly on the 65th anniversary of the start of the war. All social studies classes were invited, and Alumni Relations Pat Voss advertised the assembly inviting the public to come and listen. Over 40 veterans were expected to come to the assembly.

Freshman Spencer Erb created a memorial video for the assembly. At the assembly the school’s choir and the Silver Strings performed the national anthem. Charles Schneider, 1967 alumnus, spoke about his experiences in the war.

Seniors Kate Arendes, Jack Killeen and Anna Petersen spoke about Lincoln at Gettysburg.  Boy Scout Troops 300 and 301 presented the flags.  Trumpets were played by seniors Cullen Drissell and Killeen.  Veterans spoke to the social studies classes throughout the day about their experience during the war.
