Forest Hills Elementary students honored veterans with an assembly Monday.
Family members who are veterans attended with students and were escorted across the stage.
Students Charlie Walker and Tripp Norris made introductory remarks. Norris introduced the speaker, Lt. Col. James Carlisle (retired.)
Carlisle’s talk was followed by “My Country Tis of Thee” and “This Land Is Your Land” by second graders led by music teacher David Nay.
After a moment of silence and the sounding of “Taps,” Walker gave closing remarks followed by a parade of veterans.
