Youth celebrate veterans
Students from Paris Elementary and Inman Middle schools will honor local veterans with a free concert today at 6:30 p.m. at the Krider Performing Arts Center in Paris.
This evening of entertainment is brought to the public under the Paris Henry County Arts Council’s “Youth for the Arts” and is sponsored by Perkins Drugs.
“My group, Veazey Vocals, of fifth-graders will be singing four songs following the presentation of the flag and pledge led by some Inman Boy Scouts,” said project coordinator Minette Veazey. “There will also be a skit, ‘The Keys to Peace,’ performed by Paris Elementary teacher Brendell Cowan’s Accelerated Learners students,” she added.
A string quartet of seventh-graders from Inman Middle School will play some patriotic songs. In addition, a group of fourth- and fifth-graders will perform a parachute activity to music led by physical education teacher Debbie Elliott.
The fifth-grade winner of an essay contest will be reading his/her essay. Fourth-grade poster contest winner Caitlin Coleman will have her art work on the programs. Third-grade bookmark contest winner Rudi Beth Wimberley will have her bookmark printed and distributed that evening as well.
