Big Piney’s National
Honor Society presented its annual Veterans
Day Assembly on Monday, Nov. 11, at
11 a.m. with every student and many friends
and family participating to show respect to
the area’s veterans.
After the line of veterans shook hands
with students entering Puncher Gymnasium,
Cade Anderson welcomed everyone to the
annual celebration. After the Big Piney
Band and Choir performed the National Anthem
and hats were removed for the Pledge
of Allegiance, the moving slideshow tribute
flashed decades-old photos on the screen to
recognize local veterans, many of whom are
no longer living.
With heartfelt speeches, special musical
tributes, poems and Spencer Nichols’
explanation of the Empty Chair ceremony
to remember prisoners of wars and those
missing in action – and a lonely trumpet
playing Taps – everyone showed their appreciation
to the veterans for their services
to the country.
