The district showed its appreciation for all military service members with a special Veterans Honor Night on November 1 at the Harlandale Memorial Stadium. Before the Cowboys faced off with the Southside Cardinals, veterans from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard were presented in front of the home crowd. Each lady and gentleman walked through the McCollum High School Saber Guard, saluted the flags and then were greeted by members of the Board of Trustees, Superintendent Rey Madrigal and other district officials. The entire ceremony occurred as of the Cowboy Band played each military branch’s song.
Nationally, Veterans Day is recognized November 11.
