Veteran’s Day Tradition Continues


An Army veteran talks to Global Studies, Economics and Government students as part of BASH’s Veterans Day activities.

The social studies department today continued its annual celebration of honoring local veterans.

The veterans talked to students and staff about what it was like for them to serve for our country. NJROTC students were also involved, once again, by wearing their uniforms and welcoming the veterans to BASH as they walked to designated classrooms, and veterans were served lunch.

Students in band, orchestra, and show choir performed in the library and auditorium for the veterans as well.  

The biggest change was that there was not a push-up contest. This is because the purpose of the contest was to raise money for a Veterans Memorial Wall that the History Club is trying to build for BASH graduates who have died in a war.

Social Studies Teacher and History Club Advisor Mr. Steven Bleiler, the organizer of this special day, stated a few days before the event, “The Social Studies department is excited to host veterans once again,” he said. “We have been doing this for over twenty years and are proud to have the honor of continuing this tradition.”
