Students, teachers, organize programs in recognition of Veterans Day

 Veterans celebrations were on full display at Madison City Schools this week.
Discovery and Liberty middle schools held theirs today in recognition of the upcoming Veterans Day holiday.
 Madison City Schools is grateful to veterans for their service, and to their families for the hardships and sacrifices.
 Approximately one in four of Madison City students is military connected from parents who are either active duty or working for a defense contractor.
 These photos capture only a few images from the veterans salutes in some of our schools.
