A celebration was held on Thursday November 10, 2016 at Bluefield State College in honor of veterans. The choir at Montcalm High School sang and the keynote speaker was Preston Wolkoff. Veteran Danielle Nelson, who is currently a freshman at Bluefield State, spoke about what it means to be a veteran.
Nelson said, “This country is truly a wonderful nation and I’m so happy to be a part of it and to be a part of this ceremony to celebrate the veterans.”
Counselor at Bluefield State Daniel Frost said, “We owe our veterans a great debt in preserving our freedoms and I really look forward to doing this program every year.”
The program was held right outside the student center on Bluefield State’s campus.
