Shelledy Elementary School Celebrates Our Local Veterans


The morning will be highlighted by a Veterans Day parade at 10 a.m., with students marching through the halls with a guest they invited to the celebration or carrying photos of veterans, or those now serving, who are also family members.

About a hundred students served the veterans during the meal. "So, we appreciate their efforts in honoring the veterans".

"We wanted students to take a more active role as this is part of their leadership training and development", said Lt. Col. Erik Pettyjohn, Air Force (retired), who leads the JROTC program.

Cub Scout from Pack 25 says, "It makes me feel good to let them know that we still care about them because they did fight for our freedom".

"I was in the Army Air Corps. and as far as people calling us 'The Greatest Generation, ' we all just did our job and then came home", Moore said.

Melonas said each year, students and staff create an "honor wall" as a tribute to veterans.
