In between songs, students went to the podium and gave presentations about Veteran’s Day. The student presenting were Emily Rye, Mackenzie Tuttle, Jessica Tirado, Savannah Seidl, MaKaela Britt, Thomas Hardy, Bailey Huff, Avery Moore, Hana Weidner and Olivia Davis.

The guest speaker was Dwight Porter. “Veterans day is a special day for the United States of America,” said Porter. “It is a day set aside to remember the sacrifice of those that gave so much to defend this country we love. So many mothers and fathers gave their children to be soldiers.”

“I think the kids did an awesome job. They were very proud so sing for the veterans today,” MCES Music Teacher Heather Burkeen. “I want to thank everyone for taking time out of their day. I also want to thank our veterans for serving our country.”
