The program began with the presentation of the flag by the Knott County D.A.V. Then, the Kindergarten and first grade classes led the school in the Pledge of Allegiance, both in word and in sign language. Sophomore Elizabeth Bentley sang the National Anthem as students from grades K-12 stood at attention to the flag. The senior class developed a PowerPoint video and program honoring our veterans titled “Remembering the Fallen.” The presentation paid tribute to veterans from nearly every war fought by the United States. After the presentation, freshman Charity Cook sang “Just a Dream.” Then, Christopher Meeks delivered a speech in which the statistics of past wars were discussed, including the casualties and the number of servicemen and women who fought in those battles. Students in K-12 were asked to bring in pictures of their loved ones who had been in war, and utilizing those photos, senior Bridgett Howard introduced a PowerPoint presentation that displayed all of the JBS family pictures featuring veterans.
