West Liberty-Salem elementary students honored more than 70 Veteran family members this morning in a very special Veteran’s Day performance and reception. Fourth and fifth grade opened the program with The National Anthem followed by newer selections performed by kindergarten and first grade. The bulk of the show was performed by second and third grade. They were led by Mrs. Bethany Smucker and Mr. Brice Henry. There were many thankful veterans in the house, and WL-S is still beaming with pride after their very touching musical performance. They sang Grand Old Flag, This Land is your Land, and America the beautiful to name a few. Students then came off the risers and formed a circle around our Vets to sing Thank you, Soldiers, and God Bless America. Pulling out all the stops, Mrs. Smucker and Mr. Henry even made sure to honor each military branch individually, asking our Vets to stand when they heard their branch mentioned during Armed Forces Medley. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, and we are so proud of our students for doing their best to show each and every Veteran just how thankful we are for their service to our Country.
