Honoring Veterans

On Thursday, November 11 Bethany Christian school students, faculty, staff and guests joined together to honor and celebrate our veterans.  Six veterans with grandchildren at Bethany participated as honored guests.  The chapel program featured a presentation of the colors by Blair High School's ROTC led by First Sergeant Benaiah Hicks.  The color guard was followed by a dramatic reading by the 8th grade class of John McCrae’s In Flanders Fields.  Next the Bethany Lions Choir sang a host of patriotic songs.  Bethany Christian School principal, Dr. Bill Walner, shared from his heart about the meaning of the day, and what incredible privileges we have as a nation because of those that serve to protect our freedoms.  The chapel was followed by a receiving line in which students were able to greet and salute our veterans.
