2018 Veterans' Day Assembly

On November 12, 2018, JHS was proud to honor our community heroes at the annual Veterans' Day Assembly.  With over 20 veterans in attendance, it was very inspiring to see so many men that offered their all for our freedoms.  Thank you, Veterans!

Band
The 7-12 Band played several songs as a prelude to the event.
The 7th-12th Grade Choir sang "God Bless America."

Captain Jon Wilson
Captain Jon Wilson, with the National Guard and husband to our counselor Hannah Wilson, was our guest speaker.  He stated that one of the best ways to honor veterans was to dream big and then work hard to achieve those dreams.  He encouraged our students to use their gifts and abilities to do their best and make our world a better place.
