Veterans to be honored during annual program Friday

Twenty years ago, former P.E. Wallace Middle School Principal Rodney Hoffman and staff members Jana Milam and Vicki Sinclair decided that their students needed to learn more about Veterans Day.

Together, they conceived of a program that would both honor veterans in the community and give the Wallace students an appreciation of the meaning of Veterans Day.

That program is still going strong and Huffman, Milan and Sinclair will be special guests for the 20th Annual Wallace Veterans’ Day program on Friday, Nov.

10. For those veterans who would like to come early and visit, coffee and light refreshments will be served in the Wallace library beginning at 10 a.m. Lunch will be served for veterans and their families beginning at 11 a.m. in the Wallace gym.

The program, featuring Rodney Huffman, will begin at 1 p.m. in the gym. There will be musical performances by the Mount Pleasant High School Jazz Band, Landon Johnson and Karen Luckett.

Door prizes will also be given.
