Veterans across DeSoto Parish and Shelby County will be honored at various observances along with others nationwide for Veterans Day and Veterans Awareness Week. Beginning November 8, all DeSoto Parish Schools, at various times with the exception of Stanley High School, will host programs honoring our current and past military men and women, with Joaquin High School and Central School Corporation celebrating on actual Veterans Day, November 11. Stanley High School will hold their program the day following Veterans Day (November 12) since Monday is a school holiday. The programs are to honor our current enlisted military, in addition to former and retired military. The public is encouraged to attend these events to also pay homage to our veterans. Everyone is encouraged to check on the school visitors’ sign-in policy for that day, but most schools are only requiring that you sign a sheet provided at the entrance area of the program.

November 8, 2019 Veterans’ Day Programs:

North DeSoto Lower Elementary – NDLE’s salute to our Veterans will be presented by the Little Griffins at 9:00 a.m. in the gymnasium. For additional information call the NDLE office at 318-925-2383.
