Mt. Juliet Christian Academy will host a community wide Veterans Day Celebration on Monday, Nov. 12 from 1:30-2:30 p.m.
The event will feature music by the MJCA Band and Chorus departments, Greg MacDougal and Family, and country music star Darryl Worley.
Our administration felt like it is really important, not only to honor veterans, but to teach our students the importance of honoring them, said Admissions Director Renee Reed. It is something we want our students to participate in.
Reed said the festivities will include a presentation of the colors, singing of the National Anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance, before special speaker Robert Hibbett takes to the podium. Hibbett is a veteran and a Bronze Star recipient.
This is something that for months now we have wanted to do. We have planned it so that we would have a celebration that the students could participate in, Reed said.
The event will take place at Mt. Juliet Christian Academy, located at 735 N. Mt. Juliet Rd. For more information email Renee Reed at email@example.com.
