This past month we celebrated Veterans Day by recognizing our local veterans in a school-wide assembly. As the veterans entered the auditorium, 1700 students and 100 staff gave them a standing ovation that lasted about 10 minutes. This was just the beginning. As the program continued, time and time again the students broke out in cheers and applause to show their great admiration and respect to those men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for them and our country.
It's in moments like this when I'm remained how special our next generation of adults is. I could not be more proud of this school and our kids then I was on that day. They once again showed why our future is in great hands, hands that are competent and hands that are compassionate. Thank you all for sharing your son and daughter with us at Bend High School.
