PLMS Honors Local Veterans

November 17, 2017

On Friday, November 10th, PLMS students hosted an assembly to honor nearly 40 veterans from the United States Air Force, Coast Guard, Army, Marines, and Navy.

The veterans and their spouses/significant others were treated to a hot breakfast at 7:00 AM.  Following the breakfast, veterans were honored at an assembly with nearly 300 students, staff, and patrons.  Members of Boy Scout Troop 88, Michael LeClair, Liam Ellis, Caden Rossillon and Kenny Woodward presented the Colors.  The  8th-grade girls' choir performed the Star Spangled Banner, followed by Girl Scouts Allison Boyden, Skylar Reed, Reece Rossillon, and Emma Reed, leading the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance.  The program was moderated by 8th-grade students Riley Ellis and Wes Monaghan.  Students from each grade level presented their thoughts on Veterans Day:  5th Justin Booth, 6th Reece Rossillon, 7th Grade Ruby Johnson and 8th Miles McPherson read short essays on Veterans Day.   This year the invited speaker was 1988 PLHS Graduate Troy Able.  Mr. Able spoke from his perspective of being a veteran.  The PLMS choir performed "My Country Tis of Thee" and several videos were shared with the audience. The program concluded with 7th grader Walker Pringle's performance of TAPS, followed by the 7/8 band's performance of the "Armed Forces Salute" which featured music from all five military branches. 

At the conclusion of the program, the PLMS students enjoyed the opportunity to meet, greet and thank our veteran heroes.   The goal of our Veterans Day program is to educate our students about the sacrifice and service our veterans have given, and to communicate our deepest appreciation and respect towards each of our veterans as we say thank you for your service."
