Respect. Veterans stand and salute the flag during the pledge of allegiance. This year is FCCLA's first year planning Veteran's Day. DECA used to plan the event, but Hermann no longer has a DECA club. Macie Witthaus (11), the president of FCCLA, was behind much of the planning. She began the assembly with a short speech. "It is a good [thing] that we do honor the veterans. It warms my heart to see them get so excited! Hearing old stories from veterans, and them asking me who I am is so much fun! It was amazing having my uncle come all the way from Jefferson City, Missouri to come and be honored!" said Witthaus. Hadley Oden (10), a member of FCCLA, spoke at the assembly as well. "It was kinda stressful planning ahead for the assembly. We had to write speeches and edit speeches. It was hard to deal with expectations from previous years because this is FCCLA's first year planning it. But, everything came together really well," said Hadley. Photo Credit: Madison Ellis.
