Honor Guards assisted with the assembly.

Veteran’s Day is when we thank and remember soldiers for what they have done for us. Each year on November 11th, we commemorate Veteran’s Day. It was a special Veteran’s Day this year, because it was the centennial anniversary of the end of World War 1. At Schuyler Central High School, we commemorated Veteran’s Day on November 12. Mr. Seth Paesl, Social Studies teacher at Schuyler Central High School, coordinated the Veteran’s Day Assembly. Some of his students also helped him with the video portion of the assembly.
