Penn Yan Academy will hold it's annual Veterans Day recognition ceremony on Thursday. Teacher Michael Griffiths tells us how this program came about and why it involves a group of high school students.
Griffiths says the program has really taken off since its initial presentation in November 2010.
The FLCC government class is made up of approximately 40 seniors at Penn Yan Academy. The event November 8th at the Academy will include each local veteran being introduced by name and rank, student speeches, music videos and more. If a veteran would like to take part, they're encouraged to sign up at various locations throughout Penn Yan.
