Veterans eat lunch with Region 8 students

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- The Westside School District is honoring our service men and women.

Veterans were invited to come to the school for lunch. Students from both the elementary and middle school were able to sit with them one on one and ask questions about their service.

Colton Bush, a sixth grader at Westside used the opportunity to ask questions and learn more. "I thought it would be a great experience to, like, see how they got to do it and I was hoping on asking them some questions about how they have enough courage to work and go through it," said Bush

"I thought it would be a really good opportunity for us students to learn about how people serve our country and what they do for us," said seventh grader, Gracye Curton.

Students presented the veterans with a certificate of appreciation for their service to our country.
