Getting scholars to pay rapt attention during an assembly is no easy feat, but that’s exactly what the panelists at SA Upper West’s Veterans Day Community Circle were able to do. The event was the brain-child of Assistant Science Teacher, Juan Rosario, an Air Force Veteran of six years. Inspired by his scholars, he wanted to do something to help them understand why we celebrate Veterans Day—by meeting and hearing from real veterans.
