On Thursday, Nov. 6, Lady’s Island Middle School hosted its second annual Veterans Appreciation Ceremony.
Guests were given a warm welcome by students Edward Mcormick and Haven Washington. Nigeria Davila lead the school in the “Pledge of Allegiance”. Student readings by Talor Maddox and Jacob Denton brought to mind the importance of Veterans Day and what it means to them. The ceremony also had Retired Col. Robert White USAF as a guest speaker. He talked to the students about the importance of remembering Veterans Day and perseverance.
A real treat for the day was to have the Parris Island Marine Corps Band perform. The band played the National Anthem and each of the service songs during the ceremony which allowed those who had served in each appropriate service to stand and be recognized.
