Channelview ISD honors local veterans

     The 4th annual Veterans Day Program was hosted by Channelview Independent School District (CISD) to celebrate Veterans Day. The salute to veterans was held Nov. 7 at the Bill Neal Center and presented by Channelview High School ROTC, Aguirre Junior High LOTC, and Alice Johnson Junior High LOTC.

     Military personnel who have served our country were proudly saluted during the CISD Veterans Day program. Veterans participated in the Walk of Honor when their branch was recognized and entered the arena through crossed swords. Major Jimmy Ta was the keynote speaker at the ceremony, and he was introduced by the Mistress of Ceremony, Paola Venegas.

     The Channelview High School Band performed musical arrangements, Mr. William Titus played a selection on bagpipes, and CHS student Daniel Shahid played TAPS.
