WHS/Neumann Join Together to Honor Sacrifices of Veterans
Secretary of State John Gale Speaks at 2008 Veterans Day Assembly
Wahoo High School recently commemorated Veterans Day on Tuesday, November 11 in a joint assembly with Bishop Neumann High School. The program, which was held in the Wahoo High School gym, was sponsored by Wahoo High School’s Honors American Government students.
Over 20 veterans from the local American Legion and VFW were in attendance to help celebrate this important date. Secretary of State John Gale delivered the Veterans Day message. As the chief election officer of the state, Mr. Gale spoke about the importance of voting and that we enjoy this right because of the sacrifice of our veterans.
Members from the Wahoo High School and Bishop Neumann bands and choirs also joined in the celebration by performing renditions of “God Bless America” and “Salute to America’s Finest.” Once again, the joint music groups put on an impressive show for the nearly 800 people in attendance. This is the second year that both schools have joined together to commemorate and honor our veterans on November 11.
Wahoo High School is honored to hold this important assembly each year and looks forward to working with Bishop Neumann in the future.
