A Salute to Veterans

Bixby Elementary School honored active military service personnel and veterans during a schoolwide event just before the recent Veterans Day holiday.  More than 20 veterans were honored, and student council officers raised a new American flag atop the school’s flagpole.

Principal Sam Platis presented plaques of appreciation to the veterans on the school’s playground as students cheered and waved American flags.

Among the plaque recipients was Long Beach Unified School District Board of Education President Felton Williams, who served in the U.S. Army during the 1960s.

HONORING VETERANS – U.S. Navy veteran and Bixby Elementary School parent Ben Corpuz, with daughter Nicole, was among more than 20 veterans and active military service personnel honored during a recent school-wide assembly.
