Local veterans and dignitaries visited Noblesville High School Nov. 9 for it’s annual Veterans Day event.
The event was planned and led by the junior class in alignment with U.S. History curriculum. Local veterans attended the ceremony, as did Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear, State Rep. Kathy Richardson, State Senator Victoria Spartz and Noblesville Schools Supt. Beth Niedermeyer.
In addition to recognizing the contributions of all veterans through speeches and musical performances, Vietnam veteran James Arney also was honored with the presentation of his NHS diploma. Arney left NHS in 1974 prior to graduating to serve in Vietnam. Under Indiana code, an honorably discharged veteran who leaves school prior to graduation for military service can apply for the special accommodation.
