On Thursday, November 14th, hundreds of students from Sam Boardman and Windy River honored U.S. veterans at an assembly. Boardman’s Boy Scout Troop #602 performed the flag ceremony, Representative Greg Smith spoke, two students presented the history of Veterans Day and 6th graders sang a medley of songs of the military branches.
Rep. Smith and Principal Brandon Hammond reminded the audience to thank and support veterans, as well as the parents, spouses and children of veterans. This is the fifteenth year that the schools have had a Veterans Assembly. “It’s such a privilege to be a part of this, regardless if it’s your first or fifteenth event. I am always in awe of what an amazing country we live in and what soldiers have sacrificed for our nation,” Hammond said.
