Morningside Elementary School invited veterans from all branches of the armed forces to join students and staff in a tribute to honor their service to our county. On Thursday, November 9, the school’s hallway was lined with students waving flags, clapping, and cheering as veterans made their way to the school’s cafeteria.
Standing at attention, awaiting the ladies and gentlemen who served our country (some on active duty, some on reserve duty, some retired), was Port St. Lucie High School’s Color Guard. Students from each grade group performed songs and tributes to the audience with a medley of tunes representing each branch rounding out the performance as the finale.
Leadership St. Lucie is a community leadership adventure! Each year community leaders are selected to work together and develop together as they learn and grow in their knowledge and expertise necessary for them to serve in public or private leadership positions within St. Lucie County. Selections are made based upon a nominee’s volunteerism, education, professional achievement, personal objectives, commitment to the community and community accomplishments.
We congratulate Dr. Kevin Perry and Dr. Rafael Sanchez, proud graduates of this year’s Leadership Class of 35!
On Wednesday, November 8, the Port St. Lucie High School JROTC went to Village Green Elementary to teach about flag folding and about the Class B uniform to first graders and to fifth graders. The JROTC cadets taught the meaning of the colors and each fold in the American Flag.
