On Friday, November 9, 2018, the JROTC unit at Scott County High School hosted a Veteran’s Day ceremony to show appreciation for all those that have served in the United States military to protect our freedom.  The guest speaker was Col Brent Allen, who is also the principal at Western Elementary School in Scott County.  Bob Griffin presented a special musical selection of “Proud to be An American” and Chester Wilson performed the Taps.

Col Allen encouraged the audience to seek out the truth for themselves, and acknowledged that there is too much confusing rhetoric in our country and the world at this moment in time.  He reminded the audience that a free society relies on truth in every endeavor, and encouraged students to demand the truth, while at the same time incorporating it into their lives and to practice the truth daily.

In connection to the school’s theme for the year, Col Allen reminded students to be excellent.  He suggested that they make it their goal to be excellent in everything that they attempted, to always strive to do one’s best, and to expect one’s best from others.

Scott County High School also acknowledged staff members that served our country during the morning announcements on November 12, 2018, and had a moment of thanks for all those than have served.

    There should be more articles about ROTC like maybe what happens within the corps.
    Also, there should be articles about maybe how people feel about the school like what they like or dislike.
    Lastly, maybe more articles about leadership and ways to increase it.

    This touches my heart because my dad is in the navy and i love seeing how much people care for the ones who protect this country and fight for our freedom of speech or just freedom in general.
