Celebrating Veterans at Springville High School

Dec 11, 2018 08:30AM
By Ashley Truscott The Springville FFA chapter hosted a breakfast and an assembly celebrating Veterans in our community. This breakfast has become a tradition at Springville High School as a way to thank the Veterans for their service. Breakfast spent with the veterans has become one of the most valued experiences to our members FFA. Members enjoy meeting and learning more about those who came as they served them and visited with them during the breakfast, gaining more insight and appreciation to those who keep us free.

The breakfast was followed by a schoolwide assembly. We had a retired Navy Seal share his insight on how to take advantage of every opportunity and to set goals now to keep us focused in life.

Springville High School was very fortunate to have Mr. Neil Bennett a retired serviceman and SHS Alumni talk about respecting our country and flag. He talked about flag etiquette, shared personal stories about his service as well as taught us the proper way to retire an American Flag.

Mr. Bennett spends many hours sharing his love and commitment to our country, he loves providing flag retirement ceremonies to all different groups in Utah. This assembly marked the 108th flag that he has retired. We were lucky to have him.
