Students honor veterans and learn about their past

Students from history classes took part in Tribute to Veterans on Monday, Nov. 7 in the Multipurpose Room (MPR).

The annual event educated students who were interested in joining the military and honored those who have served. Students were given the opportunity to talk with local veterans and ask them questions regarding their branch of service, deployment, skills they acquired and their overall experience.

“Not a lot of people truly understand what it’s like being in the military. I really respect them, since it’s really brave to join and serve our country,” senior Cindy Zhang said. “After everything that they’ve been through, being able to talk to them was an eye-opening experience.”
