Thank You Veterans!

Wednesday, November 11th, 2020 was Veterans Day. Due to COVID-19, the Diamond High School Student Council was not allowed to put on their annual Veterans Day assembly at the school with students and community members in attendance. Fortunately, they were able to travel to the First Baptist Church in Diamond and have their gathering there. Golden Corral gladly catered the event, and the StuCO members served the veterans in return for their service toward the country.

Since the veterans weren’t able to interact with the students… we brought the students to them. A couple of members onĀ  student council, Emily Meador (12) and Jacey Starks (12), put together a video to show to the veterans at the church that day as a way to honor them. They included several different students from each school in the video along with the superintendent and principals showing their appreciation for the veterans. Here’s the link to the video:
