Oregon-Davis students are continuing a longstanding Veterans Day tradition of inviting members of the community who have served in the military to school for breakfast and convocation. High school principal Tim Pletcher says the sophomore class hosts the program as a way to say thank you to the men and women who have defended our freedom.
“It’s a nice way in a small community like this to let the community and the veterans know that the students and the staff here at Oregon-Davis appreciate everything they’ve done for us, and we realize we couldn’t do without the sacrifices they’ve made,” said Pletcher.
This is Pletcher’s first year as the principal at O-D, and he says he’s proud to be part of this longstanding community tradition.
“I think it’s important to recognize our veterans. Having been in education as long as I have, I’ve had several former students enlist in active military duty, they’ve served overseas. It’s just a neat way to show that we appreciate them and say thank you,” Pletcher said.
After breakfast students from all grade levels at O-D put on a Veterans Day program.
