Veterans Day Assembly Cancelled


By Kylah Woods

What would have been the first Veterans Day assembly was  canceled for this year. Band director Robert Stegeman is planning for next year’s assembly.

“I think it is important to honor those who risked their lives for our country,” Abbie Chruma, sophomore and band member, said.

Since Stegeman will be away at a national music conference with a student, administrators decided to reschedule it. They believed Stegeman should be there to help with last minute details and to see how his assembly turned out.

“I just think that we really have an opportunity to honor veterans and it would be a cool educational experience for students here,” Stegeman said.

Stegeman plans on having a few of the same elements that he had planned to include this year, such as band and choir performing together for the first time and all veterans in the community being invited.

“There’s something about playing for people to honor them,” Stegeman said. “There’s no greater feeling and I want my students to have that feeling.”
