CARR CELEBRATION - Carr Elementary School marked Veterans Day Wednesday with a special celebration featuring students, staff and those who served our nation in the U.S. armed forces. After a welcome from Dr. R.B. Mays, Carr Principal, Carr Student Council President Mia Hancock took over as mistress of ceremonies for the program. She introduced both guest speakers - Harold Hutcherson, a U.S. Navy veteran and a Fulton Independent staff member, and Doug Fisette, a U.S. Army veteran and also a FIS staff member. Hutcherson spoke briefly about his service and then, with the help of some Carr students, recognized each of the branches of service and had those who had served in them to stand. While wearing the original dress uniform he had been issued when enlisting more than three decades ago, Fisette also spoke about his time in the service and told those present what being in the military had taught him. Debbie Jackson, a member of the American Legion Auxiliary, presented the Missing Man Table, also known as the Fallen Comrade Table, which is a moving piece given in memory of fallen, missing or imprisoned military service-members. Carr first graders read two kinds of poems for the veterans while some second graders preformed "Letter to My Veteran." Carr third graders performed sign language to a patriotic song and also presented cards they had made to veterans. The fourth and fifth grade classes used two different songs to give a moving and patriotic salute to veterans to end the event.
