November 11, 2016 (More photos - Album1, Album2) - Veterans Day is a day to honor those that have selflessly served our great country. Friday, November 11th, the Tenaha Beta Club presented their annual Veterans Day program.

The Tenaha Beta Club program is dedicated to all veterans, past and present, for making the USA the best country in the world to live in. Without all the sacrifices these courageous men and women have made, this country would not be free today.

Each member of the Junior High and High School Beta Club members expressed their appreciation to local Veterans with poems and stories.

“I am proud that the Beta Students are always willing to honor our Veterans on Veterans Day,” commented Brenda Farmer, BETA sponsor. These students learn that our great country was built upon sacrifices from many others throughout history. The students are amazed that so many local people, and their own teachers that they see on a daily basis, have put their lives on the line for them and the freedoms that we all enjoy.

Beta Club members personally thanked each Veteran for their service to our country.

Tenaha Elementary First Graders also took part in honoring our Veterans by presenting their rendition of “You’re A Grand Old Flag”.
