TSD hosted a variety of special events to commemorate Veterans Day on November 11. In addition, the district participated in the “Greenlight a Vet” advocacy campaign, a program that was created by Walmart to bring further attention to the service and sacrifice of our nation’s heroes. Organizers of the campaign at the national level hoped that their efforts would compel the American public to show greater support for the men and women who have fought two wars on their behalf, while also encouraging veterans to seek the support that they may need. At its core, “Greenlight a Vet” asked all Americans to display green lights at their homes and workplaces on Veterans Day as a symbolic show of gratitude for the service and sacrifices made by more than 2.5 million military families since the nation went to war in 2001. To commemorate the campaign, TSD’s facilities crew installed green lights at schools and buildings within the district.
Here are a few photos from the many Veterans Day events that were hosted in TSD schools.
