Veterans Day Program tradition begins

On November 8, 2019, Montevallo High School hosted a Veterans Day ceremony. Veterans who attended MHS and their family relatives were recognized. Mr. Martin led the ceremony and discussed how Veterans Day began, the importance of the national holiday along with the “White Table”, also known as the “Missing Man Table” ceremony. 

Louis Smith retired S.M. Sgt, USAF said, “I thought the program was well built and executed.” He also claimed that the material was “relevant” and that he appreciated the well behaved and “professional” students here at MHS.

 The MHS Concert Band played “Taps”, “To the Colors”, and the “United States Armed Forces Salute”, a compilation of marches that are associated with each branch of the army. FFA Member. Police Cadets Kenton Reedy and Trenton Page posted and received the colors and MHS Choir sang the Star Spangled Banner. 

The Veterans Day program was a good way to honor our military families. We hope this is the start of a new tradition at MHS.
