Friday, November 10, Mart ISD honored all who served with their annual Veterans Day Program.  The program was student-led and featured several special tributes.  Boy Scouts began the program with a Presentation of Colours.   6th grade student, Dani Rasco, read a patriotic poem.    Wyatt Pankonien played the Star Spangled Banner on his banjo.   2nd grade students sang "America the Beautiful" with student Vida Quintero singing a beautiful solo.  To conclude, Mart ISD students and staff made their way to the floor to thank the Veterans in attendance.  Those in attendance were invited to a small reception after the program.  

This year's program recognized Veterans who were able to attend and those who were unable to attend but had their names submitted by students and staff.
