Odom Elementary School honored Veterans Day (Nov. 11) by beginning the day with a flag ceremony presented by fourth graders followed by a moment of silence.
Classes throughout the day continued celebrating by reading about the holiday and learning how communities across the country show their patriotic pride. Classes also made booklets to recognize the holiday.
The day’s events culminated with a presentation honoring the campus’ own veteran, Frank Cisneros, a special education teacher. He was presented with a plaque recognizing and honoring his service in the military. Cisneros served seven years in the U.S. Army as a combat engineer in the Bravo Company 980th Engineer Battalion. He completed one tour of duty in Iraq in the campaign known as Operation Iraqi Freedom II (The second year in Iraq has been termed Operation Iraqi Freedom II.).
After the plaque presentation, teachers congratulated Cisneros and thanked him for his service.
