Lenihan Intermediate School held its fourth annual Veterans Day assembly where the school honored veterans and also were able to hear some of their stories.

Organized by Lenihan custodian and Army veteran Roger Johnson, the event was a way for the fifth grade students to learn first hand military experience from a collection of veterans.

“We have a great country and freedom isn’t free, it takes responsibility from its citizens,” said Marian Hyde, who was one of veterans to speak.

Johnson also honored Lenihan PE teachers Matt Butler and Casey Moberly with a cake for their continued support of the assembly.
