FCCLA members Kameron Calhoun, Fabi Franz, Triston White, Allynia Nusser and Shay Wilson present the "Missing Man Table" at the Veteran's Day assembly. This presentation is a humble way to remember and honor the sacrifice of the men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedom.

Bottom: Rustin Cook undertakes the "22 push-up challenge" to draw attention to a tragic statistic: 22 veterans commit suicide each day, or 7,400 per year. Prevention begins with awareness.
