Ethel W. Kight Hosts Drive-Thru Veterans Parade

On Friday morning Ethel W. Kight Elementary School hosted a drive-thru parade to honor local veterans.

The event was initially scheduled for Veterans Day on Wednesday, but inclement weather caused the parade to be moved to Friday.

Students and staff lined the parking lot to safely cheer on veterans as they rode by in vehicles. Normally the school hosts a more traditional Veterans Day program, but due to COVID concerns the school pivoted to go with an outside, socially-distanced event.

The change didn’t seem to bother the kids though, who cheered their hearts out to celebrate and honor the  vets as they drove by.
