The NSU Elementary Lab School 4-H club held a patriotic Memorial Day program on Friday, May 28th. The program took place at the school’s new outdoor educational pavilion in order to remember and honor all the brave heroes who have served in our country’s military.
Fourth and fifth grade 4-H members conducted a procession of the American flag and led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance. The National Anthem was sung by music teacher, Whitney Cummins, who asked attendees to join in. E-lab student, Darvy Allison, sang America the Beautiful accompanied by her gifted instructor, Dr. Sam Stokes.
During the program, a symbolic ribbon cutting took place in order to recognize the addition of the new pavilion as an outdoor classroom for the school’s garden area. Sponsors for the pavilion were announced for their generosity in making the project such a success.
A hero flagpole was added to E-lab’s outdoor garden area and dedicated during the program in appreciation of all veterans who have sacrificed for our country. The Memorial Day program was organized by the school’s librarian and 2021 Louisiana Ag in the Classroom Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Lisa Wiggins.
