The East Meadow School District celebrated Veterans Day during the board of education’s Nov. 15 board meeting at the Salisbury School.
Several veterans from American Legion Post 1082 in East Meadow were in attendance as district leaders thanked them for their years of service. District administrators recognized the veterans with thank-you cards and gifts crafted by students in the district.
“Our veterans are the backbone of our community,” said Superintendent of Schools Kenneth Rosner. “We thank them for their service to our country and for their continued service to our community.”
Additionally, East Meadow High School’s brass ensemble, under the direction of the school’s Chairperson of Music Stephen Engle, performed the Armed Forces Tribute as part of the celebration.
“The East Meadow School District would like to honor our veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice,” said Dr. Kelly Nixon, the district’s director of music and art. “The East Meadow school community is grateful and thankful for your bravery, service and sacrifice.”
