On Monday, November 11, the students and staff of Sherrard School District will honor our local men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces. All K-12 schools will gather at the high school for a ceremony that will include music, personal recognition of local veterans, a speech from a military officer, and video messages from active duty service members in locations around the world.
The Sherrard School District chooses to have the students attend school on Veterans Day and use the day as a learning opportunity. It is important to teach the next generation about the cost of freedom and the selfless sacrifice of veterans who have defended it.
In the northeast corner of the high school commons, there is an Honor Wall for the names of Sherrard graduates who have gone on to military service. In addition to the name, the year of graduation and the service branch is noted for each of the veterans. The list is incomplete, so the public is invited to submit information of known veterans who qualify to have their names added.
