Centura Public Schools recognized and honored veterans from the surrounding area on Tuesday, November 7, 2017. The band recognized each branch of the service with an Armed Forces Salute; veteran guests stood as their branch anthem was played.

Boys and Girls State representatives, Heather Hewitt, Boelus; Noah Bruggeman, Barrett Selden, and Emily Serr, Dannebrog; and Abby Hadenfeldt, Cairo shared their experiences from this past summer.

Guest speaker was Bill Crosier, who served in the US Army from 1964-1967, and is the National Executive Committeeman for the American Legion State of Nebraska.

Members of the Centura Student Council presented a wooden flag to the school made by Flags of Valor, a veteran-owned, veteran-operated, veteran-made company that employs veterans, raising money for veteran and first-responder charities.

The Junior and Senior High Choir performed a celebration of songs to honor veterans, and students from the Media Class showed a video tribute for all veterans.

A meal, prepared by the kitchen staff, was served by the Senior Class to approximately 60 veterans and their guests.
