Nye elementary school welcomed 17 local veterans for breakfast and celebration in the campus library. Principal Cynthia Caballero initiated the morning program, which featured guest speaker Lt. Col David Ramirez and musical salutes from the Nye Wildcat Honors Choir and Cheerleaders. Poetic tributes from second-grade students Ivan Fuentes and Travis Woodlee reflected heartfelt appreciation for generations of veterans who have given of themselves to preserve freedom at home and combat tyranny the world over. The event concluded with an honorary medal ceremony. Nye elementary was one of many United ISD campuses holding special events for our local heroes. Veterans Day is Monday, November 11.
