State College, Pa- Corl Street Elementary students in State College are honoring veterans ahead of Veterans Day.
Friday, the school held its eighth annual Veterans Day recognition assembly.
The assembly featured relatives of Corl Street Elementary students, who announced their parents name and armed forces branch before giving them a big hug.
WTAJ asked U.S. Army Veteran Edward Reutzel why he thinks assemblies like this are important.
“It’s good for the kids to learn about veterans, learn about America…. so it’s an exciting opportunity for me and for them,” Reutzel said.
State College Area School District will continue it’s veterans day celebrations next week at Park Forest Elementary and Delta Middle School.
