Veterans Day was a great success! We had a large turnout for our annual Veterans celebration on Tuesday, November 12. Since this year marked the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam conflict, a ceremony was held to recognize the veterans of the Vietnam conflict with the presentation of pins commemorating their service for our country. After the ceremony, veterans and their families were treated to gumbo in our cafeteria, where a slide show continually showed the pictures and accomplishments of veterans from around the Arnaudville/Cecilia/Breaux Bridge area. Veterans expressed their thanks for the school for recognizing their accomplishments and treating them with the respect and dignity they each deserve.
