Veterans Day Celebration
Be Our Guest of Honor at Heritage Christian School’s Veterans Day Celebration
Heritage Christian School is hosting our Veterans Day Celebration on Monday, November 11 from 9:45am-11:15am. As part of an annual tradition, community members and parents are invited to join the students and staff of Heritage Christian School to honor and thank present and past members of the United States Armed Forces. Classes are suspended for the morning as the entire school participates in the half-day program.
The program will feature instrumental and choral performances, an Armed Forces Salute, and presentation of the colors. Our speaker this year is Karl “KJ” Johnson, Lt.Col., USMC (Ret.), Director of the C.S. Lewis Institute in Chicago. KJ retired after 20 years in the Marine Corps where he served as a helicopter pilot, weapons and tactics instructor, and operations officer. He’s a veteran of numerous deployments and served as the Air Mission Commander for former Presidents George H.W. Bush and William J. Clinton.
At the end of the event, each Heritage student shakes the hand of each veteran in attendance, thanking them for their service. It is a very memorable and special event that you will not want to miss!
