Con­roe, Texas – Sa­cred Heart Catholic School re­cently wel­comed com­mu­nity veter­ans to the school’s third an­nual Vet­eran’s Day cel­e­bra­tion fea­tur­ing an honor guard pre­sen­ta­tion by Boy Scout troop and Cub Scout pack 1517 and a TAPS trum­pet ded­i­ca­tion by stu­dents Thomas Far­rell and Troy Horn. “I truly look for­ward to our Vet­eran’s Day cel­e­bra­tion each year be­cause it gives the stu­dents a sense of pride and shares a part of our hearts with the com­mu­nity and our beloved veter­ans,” said Prin­ci­pal Deb Brown. “We are blessed and thrilled to share this day with friends, loved ones and col­leagues that have ded­i­cated a part of their lives to us and our coun­try.”

Af­ter pack 1517 es­corted and posted the na­tional colors, US Army Sergeant First Class and Re­tired Sa­cred Heart Li­brar­ian Stu­art Orms­bee led the school in the Pledge of Al­le­giance and the Pledge to the Texas flag. Prin­ci­pal Brown then led the as­sem­bly in prayer and hon­ored the lo­cal veter­ans with a spe­cial trib­ute and ded­i­ca­tion from the Vet­eran’s Day Procla­ma­tion.

Each grade level par­tic­i­pated in the cel­e­bra­tion. The PreK – 3rd grade stu­dents made posters and dec­o­ra­tions that brought the Gym­na­sium and Au­di­to­rium to life honor­ing the veter­ans with vi­brant works of art for the ded­i­ca­tion event. The fourth through eighth grade stu­dents were as­signed a Vet­eran’s Day es­say con­test. The three win­ners, fourth grader Marie Ashby, fifth grader An­nie John­ston and sev­enth grader Lily Col­lora all stood and read their es­says to the as­sem­bled cer­e­mony at­tribut­ing many words of honor and pa­tri­o­tism. Af­ter all veter­ans and ac­tive mil­i­tary were asked to come for­ward and in­tro­duce them­selves, the Sa­cred Heart Choir per­formed a med­ley of pa­tri­otic songs and fin­ished with the crowd join­ing them to sing “Amer­ica the Beau­ti­ful.” Fol­low­ing the cer­e­mony, ev­ery­one was wel­comed to a brunch hosted by the Sa­cred Heart Par­ent Teacher Or­ga­ni­za­tion.

Brown added, “It was such an honor to host our Vet­eran’s and ac­tive mil­i­tary men and women and see them in­ter­act with the stu­dents. We could not be more thrilled with the beau­ti­ful cer­e­mony our PTO, fac­ulty and stu­dents worked so hard on that hon­ored our fam­ily and com­mu­nity mem­bers for Vet­eran’s Day.”
