Mayfield Elementary Honors Veterans

On November 9, Mayfield Elementary School honored Veterans with a school-wide assembly. Madison Central High School’s JrROTC led by Frank Myers kicked off the ceremony by posting the colors. Each grade level sang patriotic songs led by music teacher Matthew Courtney.

Other patriotic music was provided by Mayfield Alumni and trumpeters Dassika and Jaianne Gilkey who played "You’re a Grand Old Flag" and "Taps". The program’s highlight was honoring our guest Veterans and especially Mayfield’s guest speaker Bill Wason from the Army National Guard.

Chief Warrant Officer Wason presented Mayfield with an American flag which was flown over the "Victory Over America Palace" located on the Victory Base Complex, Baghdad, Iraq, on September 11, 2001. Mayfield Elementary thanks all who have served our country or who are currently serving in the military to protect our freedom.
