Carson City students are recognizing and honoring military men and women this week with Veterans Day displays and events. Veterans from all branches of military service, as well as families of students, have been encouraged to attend or participate in events Wednesday and Thursday. Campus visitors should check in at the front office at each school site.
“It is important for students to recognize the sacrifices others have made for our country and community,” said Andrew Feuling, superintendent. “Patriotic events and displays like these, showing appreciation and gratitude, are beneficial for all who attend, including our veterans.”
