Annawan School District Honors Veterans

The Annawan School District honored our Veterans on Friday, November 10th.  The school wide assembly had a great deal of patriotism as we had the Color Guard present the United States flag, readings by our Junior High and High School Student Council Presidents, and special music from our band and choir.  We also had a special slide show tribute to our local veterans that was put together by Ms. Walker and her students.

This year’s guest speaker was 2000 Annawan High School Graduate, Mr. Mark Bomleny.  Mr. Bomleny (pictured below) talked about his time serving in the military and shared his message on what it means to serve others.  The assembly was very nice and we appreciate the support from the community as well to make the day so memorable.
