In honor of our veterans, East High’s Music Department hosted the 2nd Annual Veteran’s Day Concert in the auditorium on Thursday, November 10th, 2016. During second period many staff members and students, as well as veterans, joined to not only enjoy but to honor those who are serving and who have served for our country.
Students from The Lighthouse Committee recited poems that were written for our troops as they were overseas. Our upper and lower school choirs combined singing “Bless Our Troops,” earning a standing ovation from the crowd. East’s band also performed, playing the songs for each service branch and asked the veterans that served in the branch to stand when they heard the song of where they served.
East would like to thank everyone who served in our country and sacrificed their lives for us to be here today.
