In Novem­ber, the fac­ulty and staff of Land­mark High School in Span­ish Fork had their an­nual Veter­ans Day as­sem­bly in con­nec­tion with re­tir­ing the Amer­i­can flag that has flown over the school dur­ing the past year. The flag re­tire­ment pro­gram was con­ducted by the veter­ans who work at LHS. As­sis­tant Prin­ci­pal Scott Car­son talked about the proper way to re­tire the Amer­i­can flag. The flag was re­tired by Howard Bonzo, Todd Kil­lian, Mark Van-Voorhis, Paul Dopp, Roy Devenish and KC Rawl­in­son while the stu­dents stood qui­etly out­side around the flag pole watch­ing the flag be re­tired and re­placed. The stu­dents showed great re­spect dur­ing the time the flag was be­ing low­ered, burned and re­placed with the new flag.

Af­ter the flag re­tire­ment pro­gram, the fac­ulty, staff and stu­dents went into the gym and learned about all the dif­fer­ent staff mem­bers who have served in the mil­i­tary. It was such an honor to hear from our veter­ans as they shared their sto­ries about why they joined the mil­i­tary and where they have served. At the end of as­sem­bly, Todd Kil­lian sang “God Bless the USA” by Lee Green­wood as a trib­ute to all those who have served in the mil­i­tary.

Stu­dents at Land­mark High School watched as the flag fly­ing out­side their school was re­tired and a new one put in its place dur­ing a Veter­ans Day pro­gram in Novem­ber.
