Honoring our Veterans
Our schools and offices are closed Monday in honor of Veterans Day. On Thursday, there were activities and ceremonies throughout the division to celebrate Veterans for their service. The programs are distinguished events that include numerous student performances. From songs by the school band and chorus, to student speakers, and theatrical performances, the schools celebrate the brave members of the Armed Forces and their family members who support them. I have never seen a school division and community celebrate Veterans Day quite like Isle of Wight County!
Below is a video that highlights moments from our Veterans Day programs held last year. It's a beautiful tribute to the men and women who serve our country. We will also be sharing pictures from this year's events on our Facebook page. If you know someone who served in the military, or someone who is currently a member of the military, please share the video with them. I realize many of them may not be able to attend ceremonies taking place in their honor and I hope this video and pictures on Facebook can convey our appreciation. We owe so much to the men and women of our military for the sacrifices they have made to ensure our freedom.
