JEES Celebrates Veteran's Day

JEES students celebrated Veteran's Day with a visit from four local veterans. Fetima Coaxum, Shaquoya Bell, Claudette Alexander, and Elijah Dent shared their experiences and expertise as service members.  Students learned about the similarities and differences between the different branches and about some of the jobs our service members do.  At the end of the program, students got to try on some of the gear our visitors brought and taste various MREs (Meal, Ready-to-Eat) and take samples back to their classrooms.  Students left the program with a thank you card for them to write a thank you note to a veteran.
