Humble High School hosted their fifth annual “Wildcat Salute to Veterans” ceremony on Tuesday inside the school’s Commons area.  Approximately 25 veterans attended the event honoring our country’s men and women who have served in our nations military.  Members of the JROTC, CDT MAJ Blake Best, CDT CSM Rosa Cornejo, first sergeant instructor O’Bryant, and principal Charles Ned, participated in a re-enactment of laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier while ‘Taps’ was played by members of the schools marching band.  Following ‘Taps’, members of the HHS choir, led by Ben Fahnders, and students of the American Sign Language class, led by Cindy Beall, sang and signed the National Anthem.    Throughout the day, senior cadets stood guard and also marched, much like soldiers do at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, D.C.  Congressman Ted Poe attended the event and gave a brief, but moving, speech thanking veterans, their families, and current and future members of our armed forces.  Poe and Ned were presented with wooden framed display boxes that contained flags that flew over the U. S. Embassy in Afghanistan.  Also during the ceremony, student Alma White read a somber poem she wrote specifically for this Veterans Day event.  Concluding the ceremony, the school’s Key Club, sponsored by Edna O’Bryant, hosted a breakfast for attendees in the cafeteria.  Photo: Congressman Ted Poe (Picture Center) with Veterans who attended the “Wildcat Salute to Veterans” at Humble High School.
