Honoring Our Nation's Veterans

Veterans Honored

On Friday, November 17, 8th Grade Civics students spent the day honoring our nation's veterans by attending the annual Veterans Day Experience Workshop at the Heinz History Center.   Twenty-eight students developed questions to ask veterans prior to their field trip to gain eligibility for this unique experience.  

At the History Center, veterans from Iraq, Vietnam, Korea, and World War II answered students' questions, shared personal stories, and brought artifacts from their time in the military.  Students met in small groups to have more personal interactions with each veteran and learned about their remarkable stories.  The heroic actions of these individuals were an inspiration to both students and teachers. 

Veterans in attendance included:  Lee Wagner (Iraq), Dave Borland (Korea), Larry Woods (Vietnam), Warren Goss (World War II), and former Avonworth teacher, Bob Taylor (World War II - Homefront).
