With Bt's transition to distance learning, the school was not able to host its annual Veterans Day Assembly. The Upper School Student Council invites all members of the school community to participate in honoring veterans by watching this presentation. The guest speakers featured in this video are Lorrie and Carol Krejci, daughters of Sgt. Jack Krejci, a veteran of World War II and POW. We thank Lorrie and Carol for sharing their father’s story. Thanks, also, to Mr. Gould for providing the 2018 recording of our national anthem, sung by the 2018-2019 Upper School Choir. Thank you, Mr. Harrell and the student council for creating this presentation.
