Veterans Day Assembly 2016

Stars and Stripes Forever
On November 11, 2016, JHS hosted a
Veterans' Day assembly to recognize those that
have served to protect our freedoms. With around 35 veterans
from all branches of the military in attendance,
it was a very moving experience for many.
Thank you, Veterans, for your service and sacrifice.
