The Wapakoneta Middle School Student Council held their annual Veterans Day on November 11, 2021. The students honored invited guests with speeches given by the student council co-presidents and were serenaded by the WMS school choir. Wapakoneta VFW Post 8445 Honor Guard presented the colors and Chaplain Matthew Kirkpatrick of the Ohio National Guard was the featured guest speaker. The students were able to experience the tight-knit sense of community and camaraderie the veterans share with one another. The ceremony concluded with photos of the veterans and their students, a goodie bag and a renewed sense of appreciation for all those who have served or are actively serving.
