Art students make poster for Veterans Day assembly

Jaden Waid, Arts Reporter

Today, Duncan Middle School held a Veterans Day assembly to honor the people still in the military forces, retired and those who died serving their country. The assembly was only one way students and teachers showed their respect and welcoming hearts for the veterans.

Melissa Mayo, DMS art teacher, worked with her students to make a banner to hang during the assembly. Mayo said she made the banner herself, and it found it wasn’t hard to make. It took her about 5 minutes to make. Students signed the banner.

A banner was added to the background of the Veterans Day assembly.

She decided that she would hang it on the wall by the cafeteria because she thought that it was the best spot so everyone could see it. It had “Thank you, Veterans” written across it, with blue and red swirls surrounding it. She said that she was very happy with what she made.

She also said that veterans day means to her, that it is to remember the sacrifices the veterans have made for us, and our freedom. She said that she had to swallow her tongue to stop herself from crying.

“I started to cry because my friend had died in July, and it was his first year not attending,” she said.
