Visiting with our Veterans took place on Thursday, November 9, 2017 at Corinth Elementary School. Local Veterans spent the day meeting and greeting students, faculty, and staff throughout the building. We were lucky enough to meet with over 50 Veterans from various ranks and branches of the military. They spoke in classrooms on topics such as respect, responsibility, and safety, and shared thoughts about freedom and why they love our country.
Afterwards, Veterans joined us for lunch with the students. Student-made patriotic decorations were placed around the building, placemats were made for tables at the cafeteria, and a banner was hung for Veterans to write words of wisdom for the students.
It was a memorable day for all. An event that leaves warmness in the hearts of many and one that is appreciated by the Veterans who are honored by so many.
