Commemorate Sacrifice, Service
to Country on Veterans Day

In our district, we celebrate Veterans Day in a big way. We want all our veterans — including students’ parents, grandparents, friends and relatives, as well as our own employees and alumni — to feel extra special.

To this end, some campuses host annual Veterans Day events, while district employees with military service celebrate together at a meal featuring student artwork and music.  Texas State Rep. Kenneth Sheets, a veteran himself, will be keynote speaker this year.

In addition, videos honoring Mesquite ISD alumni veterans have been airing at high school football games. A compilation of these video tributes soon will be posted on our YouTube channel.

Please join me in commemorating the sacrifices and contributions made by all and thanking the veterans we know for their services to our country.
