Pillow Academy celebrated Veterans Day on Friday, November 11th.
Pillow Academy proudly honored our veterans and their families this morning. Many thanks to Mr. Russell Robertson, our keynote speaker. The student council officers, Drew Lamb, Larkin Camp, and Sarah Frances O'Brien, did a great job throughout the program. Also, thank you to the Boy Scouts who began and ended the program with the posting and retiring of colors. A big thank you to Mrs. Sulee Blansett and to all of the 4th and 5th grade students for singing a special military medley under the direction of Mrs. Mary Katherine Acosta. Another big thank you goes to Kaitlyn Thomas and Sarah Frances O'Brien for starting the program with the Star-Spangled Banner and a special thank you to Mrs. Shannon Melton for singing Taps. Our 7th grade students had special thank you notes for veterans along with artwork from our elementary students. PAPA closed the day with a wonderful reception for our guests. And we especially want to thank our veterans for their service and sacrifice to keep our country great.
