Colo-Nesco hosts annual Veterans Day celebration
Colo-Nesco held its fifth annual Veterans Day ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 10, in the Colo Gymnasium. Senior Ayden Bappe was the emcee for the event, which featured First Lieutenant Bryce Meier from the Iowa Army National Guard as the guest speaker. Lt. Meier, a native of Waverly, focused his attention on the multiple reasons why veterans choose to serve. The program lasted approximately 45 minutes, and included music by the Colo-Nesco high school band and choir, as well as a recognition of sixth-grade students who competed in an essay contest about the American Flag. Following the ceremony, an appreciation meal was served to approximately two dozen local veterans and community members.
