Veterans across the area were honored this afternoon at Houston Schools’ annual veterans program at Hiett Gymnasium.

The program included: Lt. Terry Knapp, a veteran of the Gulf War, Mountain Grove Junior ROTC color guard, presentation of commemorative medals, a donation of funds from the school’s “Power of 11 Cents” program and performances by the Houston High School Band and high school and middle school choirs.

The 1 to 2 p.m. program was followed by a reception in the gym’s concession stand.

Last week, Houston’s first graders honored the country’s veterans Thursday night by performing their annual “Proud Little Americans” program at the elementary gymnasium.
