RCS Veterans Day Program Highlights

RCS honored veterans in a special Veterans Day Program last Thursday. Students invited veterans to join the RCS student body in our first in-person Veterans Day celebration since 2019. Guests were treated to performances by the RCS Music Club, RCS Band, and 8th grader Kenner Jarnigan and music teacher Beth Jarnigan. 7th grader Kaitlyn Cooley and 4th graders Olivia Hutchison and Dillon Albright read their award-winning Veterans Day essays. Visitors were also able to view student display boards featuring veterans in their families as well as special art work to commemorate the holiday. Hawkins County Veterans Service Officer Mike Manning was the guest speaker for the event. Thank you to Mrs. Jarnigan for organizing this program, allowing students to learn and appreciate the service of veterans!
