IHS honors veterans


On November 10, 2022, during homeroom, students and staff honored veterans by watching a video presentation put together by social studies teacher Mr. Doody. 

The video consisted of information about the many wars and battles the U. S. military has faced and to honor the soldiers who have sacrificed for their country.

Veterans who are relatives of the students and staff members of IHS were highlighted in a series of slides organized by various wars and conflicts in which they served. 

Sophomore Ayla Kugler stated, “I think it is important that we recognize the veterans and the families of students and staff because it allows students to see how many people in our school community have family members that fought for our country.”

Dr. Laird’s music students joined together to sing songs that added to the soundtrack of the presentation. Bass and treble chorus along with acapella and orchestra filmed videos to add to the video. 

Freshman Oliver John commented, “Veterans have honored our country so why not honor them? They deserve to be respected for their service and dedication. Recognizing the veterans in the families of students and staff is also very important. You can maybe even learn a little bit from a student or faculty member and realize how many families are impacted by veterans. Every veteran represents the best of us.”

The amount of IHS families impacted by those who serve in the armed forces highlight the importance of celebrating this day every year, so that we may always be thankful to those who serve.

Sophomore Joseph Hunter says, “I feel that it is important that we had the assembly, it’s important we show respect to those who have given their lives and time to serve in the military. For the people who have given their lives to this country, I feel that we should honor them with the highest regard.”

Veterans are very important to our community and should be honored and celebrated every year.
