Schools' Music Students To Honor Veterans
May 25, 2012Mt Pleasant High School
The Henry County Honor Guard has once again asked the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade elementary students to sing for the Memorial Day Service at Mt. Pleasant High School. The young singers will be joined by the high school band and vocal students for several selections.
Among the songs that the elementary students will sing is Battle Hymn For Gettysburg as the Honor Guard traditionally has someone read the Gettysburg Address. Shari Moeller and Katie Townsend direct the elementary students.
The high school band, directed by Jim DePriest, will play several patriotic selections, including the Star Spangled Banner.
The event begins at 10:30 AM in the high school gym and is expected to last 45 minutes. Maj. Randy Higginbotham of Swedesburg, a full-time employee of the Iowa National Guard, will be the keynote speaker at this year’s observance.
