To honor local veterans and those currently serving in the military, Runnels School held two receptions and musical programs in the Gladys Hague Runnels Theatre on Veterans Day. Hosting the events were Headmaster Greg Brandao, Elementary Principal Marcia Mackay and Junior and Senior High Principal Conchetta Foshee.

For the elementary school’s morning program, first- through sixth-graders welcomed veterans with a standing ovation as they walked into the theater to a military march played by sixth- and seventh-grade band and strings students. The Upper Elementary Chorus also performed at the event.

In the afternoon, the junior and senior high observed Veterans Day with a musical program featuring patriotic music by strings, band and chorus students. Many veterans attending the events were relatives and friends of Runnels students, faculty and staff.
