On Friday, May 26th, students and staff at Veteran’s Memorial STEM Academy were joined by District leadership, elected officials, and representatives from the Disabled American Veterans for the State of Nevada for a special ceremony. The event honored and remembered American military veterans while dedicating a stone memorial near the school’s flagpole. The ceremony included a schoolwide flag salute, comments by dignitaries, a display of new flags representing each branch of the American armed forces hung in the cafeteria, and a lesson on the significance of each of the flags.
Students and staff interact throughout the school year with the nearby Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The stone memorial provides an opportunity to reinforce the lessons taught about how American military personnel have preserved our freedom and celebrated Memorial Day.
