On Veterans Day, November 11th Nowata High School faculty and students organized a program to thank our veterans for their service. Superintent, Dr. Kathryn Berry welcomed the veterans. Holly Belden SR, Alyssa Buss JR, Scotty Hicks SR and Jarred West SR sang our National Anthem. The high school band and choir, directed by Jennifer Prince, gave an outstanding performance honoring the veterans. Also, the Nowata Elementary students performed patriotic songs. Also there were videos explaining the “Pledge of Allegiance” and Francis Scott Key’s motivation in writing the Star Spangled Banner bringing a buddle of emotion within the room. The ceremony ended with retirement of the colors by Boy Scout Troop 777 and closing remarks by Dr. Kathryn Berry.
