Canton High School welcomed veterans into their classrooms again this year in honor of Veteran’s Day.
Twenty honored guests attended this year from Canton, as well as neighboring communities of Avon, Bolton, and New Hartford to share their experiences with the students. This year’s theme was a focus upon the “citizen soldier,” a person not unlike the Roman Cincinnatus and our own George Washington, both of whom were called to serve, and upon completing their tasks, returned to their humble professions. Canton recognized these individuals who are unassuming and humble in their service to our nation. I would like to give a special thank you to Nora Mocarski, Social Studies Department Chair, for her efforts in coordinating an informative and powerful Veterans Day Commemoration.
