The Thomas C. Marsh Preparatory Academy’s Leadership Cadet Corps on Thursday participated in a special Veterans Day event as part of the school’s Preview Night. The LCC Military Museum has been open for tours and a reception for family honoring veterans.
At Dallas City Hall, the Dallas ISD student winners of the Veterans Day Art Contest were recognized for their artwork commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I – Armistice Day – which later became Veterans Day.
