Timberland High School celebrated Veterans Day on Nov. 11 with a special program coordinated by the school’s JROTC.
Sergeant Woodberry was the Master of Ceremonies. After special presentations and videos, speakers from Boeing talked to the students.
The speakers were Khaleeiah Green, BSC fuse joints assembler, and Frank R. Hatten of the company’s education relations department.
Ms. Green is a 2000 graduate of Timberland and is pursuing her college degree while working at Boeing. Mr. Hatten stressed the importance of good work ethics and a good attitude. He answered questions from the audience.
Major Antwine recognized the Veterans at Timberland, including Mr. Ford, Mrs. Nichols, Mrs. Wood, Mrs. Powers, Principal Daugherty and Major Antwine.
Thanks to everyone who took part in the program, and a huge thanks to all our Veterans and all they have done to protect us and our country.
Congratulations to the Timberland Wolves football team for making it to the second round of the playoffs.
Happy November Birthday
