Veterans honored with virtual ceremony

Greene County Tech serves free food to those who have served the country

PARAGOULD, Ark. (KAIT) - The Greene County Tech High School honored area veterans Saturday with a free drive-thru meal and virtual ceremony.

It was the school’s 49th Veterans Day event, but the pandemic forced them to make a few changes.

Lori Dial, the event coordinator, said more than ever it’s important to recognize those who have served our country.

“Skip over a year is just not right. Our veterans have sacrificed so much for us and have done so much for us," she said. "We don’t want a year to go by without at least acknowledging and trying to show some appreciation as best we can.”

The students served more than 50 meals.
