Northern Middle School’s student council was proud to honor the veterans with an afternoon celebration on November 11th.  More than 150 guests joined friends and family for food, drink, and entertainment. 
Northern High’s JROTC presented the flags and colors followed by the “Star Spangled Banner” played by Mr. Jones and band students:  Jade Lewis, Jacob Glotfelty, and Evan Beachy. 
Cross Ritchey performed “God Bless the USA”, and Lillian Cuozzo and Emily Mayles sang “America the Beautiful”.  Sara Huelskamp was the final performer playing a beautiful piano piece. 
"I am so proud of the Northern Middle School students for showing their respect to our veterans," said Mrs. Karen DeVore, Principal.
