Lakeside Middle School's Veterans Day Assembly

Lakeside Middle School honored Veterans at a special assembly on Friday, November 8th.  Mr. Kurt Kimberling, retired Air Force, served as the Master of Ceremonies at this celebration of the 101st Veterans Day.  He shared many insights, patriotic readings, and famous quotes to encourage the students to reflect on what it means to serve..."all gave some, but some gave all." 
The seventh and eighth grade band, as well as the choir, performed several musical tributes to our armed forces.  Principal Keith Browning gave a reading of Ragged Old Flag as an eighth grader played the sax.  Veterans were asked to stand to be recognized when their branch of service's fight song was played. The assembly ended with a trumpet solo of Taps.
