BULLHEAD CITY – Two Tri-state area schools will honor veterans in separate ceremonies Thursday (November 7). The Veterans Day assembly at Mohave High School has been in place for a number of years; Bullhead City Middle School, previously Bullhead City Junior High School, is continuing its tradition for a second year.
Area veterans are invited to both, which will have slightly different focuses because of grade levels. Mohave’s begins at 10:25 a.m. while the Middle School’s starts at 1:30 p.m, both Arizona time. Each will last about an hour. Veterans are asked to arrive at least 15 minutes early.
On both campuses, current and former members of the military will be recognized by service branch. Mohave’s ceremony also includes special recognition for the area’s World War Two vets in the audience.
The guest speaker for Mohave’s assembly is Ken Kruse, who was wounded in combat.
Both programs will also feature demonstrations by members of Mohave’s Air Force Junior ROTC and the school choirs performing the national anthem. Veterans and student council members will jointly lead the pledge of allegiance at Bullhead City Middle School.
At the Middle School’s assembly, veterans and students will have an informal question and answer opportunity as students leave. The school will host veterans to a reception afterward.
