On Wednesday morning, November 7, 2018, Collinsville Middle School welcomed local veterans to the school’s first annual Veterans Breakfast. Several of the attendees volunteered to stay and be interviewed by students from Ms. Larsen’s advanced social studies class.
The students used iPads to record their conversations with the veterans about military service and experiences in wartime. The interviews will be shared with the Madison County Historical Society for their archives.
The Veterans Day breakfast and associated activities were conceived by teachers Karen Kalous, Dana Larsen and Principal Dr. Kim Jackson.
Here is a video of the morning’s highlights:
