VETERANS DAY PROGRAM - Fulton City High School held their annual observation of Veterans Day Wednesday morning in the school’s gymnasium. Following a welcome to the guests and recognition of the veterans and their branches of service by Dr. R.B. Mays, Fulton’s Principal, Quinton Tribble, Quinen Tribble and Kire Tribble, brothers as well as Boy Scouts, presented the colors. Stacy Tribble, their mother, sang the National Anthem and Will Elliott, a Fulton graduate and U.S. Marine Corps veteran, led those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. Flag. Tinequa Pryor, a senior at Fulton City, read “Thanks to Them,” a poem honoring military veterans. Following a very moving video tribute, David Lucy, a veteran of the U.S. Army and current member of the National Guard, spoke. Lucy talked about his time prior to joining the Army and how his decision had given his life direction. He encouraged students who had no plans to attend college to consider military service and explained how his duty had allowed him to earn a bachelor’s degree – paid for by the U.S. military – and will soon give him the opportunity to earn a master’s degree. .Debbie Jackson, a member of the local 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. Following a moment of silence led by Coach Michael Thomas Sr., FIS Community Education Director and the person in charge of both the Carr and Fulton City programs, the Tribble brothers retired the flags to end the event. The veterans were invited to a reception in their honor in the school’s library following the program.
