DAR and American Legion lead tribute to Veterans

Centerville ISD hosted a Program of Tribute to all Veterans, held in Centerville's Fine Arts Center on November 11, Veterans’ Day. Teacher Cynthia Torno, who is Chairman for the Good Citizen Award, Colonel George Dashiell Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, worked with the American Legion for the program. Service Officer Larry Bass of the American Legion led the Flags Ceremony with Centerville High School students acting as color guard. Mrs.Torno gave an overview to the students of the protocol of respect to the our nation's Flag. She described the American Creed, and the Pledge of Allegiance, and the importance of respect to our Nation's Flag which is a "living symbol" of democracy. Mrs. Torno also thanked our Veterans who have served this great nation in war and peace. The focal point for the program was the "MIA Chair" and a solitary white wreath with red roses and a blue banner dedicated "To the Unknown Soldier...Known By God". An Acapella Group composed of students and adults from the community sang: "The Star Spangled Banner" and "Amazing Grace". The school band also provided patriotic music.

Mrs. Torno presented the DAR Good Citizen Award, with appropriate pin and certificate to two deserving seniors: Ethan Clossin and Madison Rhew. These students were selected by their teachers and the staff for their leadership, scholarshop, patriotism, and citizenship.

The Colonel George Dashiell is proud to have these students recognized.
