Even though Veterans Day fell on a Saturday this year, that did not stop local schools from honoring those alive and passed. Conway schools held an assembly on Nov. 9, with all students k-12 attending. Other schools around Webster County, including Marshfield, Logan-Rogersville, Strafford, Niangua, and Fordland, held assemblies on Nov. 10. Many drew large crowds as guests and vets attended. The assemblies included speeches, music, and meals, with each school honoring those who answered the call to serve.
All the schools had the same message: “Thank You for your service and sacrifice.”
