South Elementary honors Veterans

South Elementary had the privilege of honoring our Veteran's this past Friday!

Veterans from every branch of the armed forces attended. Mr. Nelson, our principal, opened the program with a welcome. Then the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 995 Jackson lead the Presentation of Colors. All of this was followed by prayer, a 13 Flag Fold Program, Armed Forces Medley, and various students speaking on "What a Veteran Means to Me." Jamarion Grimes, fifth grader, was the MC for the program.

Veterans were treated to a brunch after the program in the library. It was provided by the South Jackson Civitan Club.
