Mishawaka schools perform a tribute concert for vets

Posted:

To honor our nation's heroes, Emmons Elementary in Mishawaka decided to pay tribute with a musical salute.

Veterans and current service members were recognized at the school while students sang their tribute songs. 6th graders were designated narrators who read poems in honor of those who served.

6th graders Meilani Taylor, Kaleigh Johnson, and Eric Arsenau were all narrators at the ceremony. Taylor says, "I'm happy that I have freedom and that I'm here today."

Johnson says, "Pretty much I would be here right now if it wasn't for veterans, so I'm pretty thankful for them."

"All veterans should celebrate and be happy for what they did for this country," Arseneau says.

Liberty Elementary plans to have their veteran's day musical to honor our nations heroes on Thursday, November 14th, at 1:45pm in the Liberty Gymnasium.
