    Veterans' Day

    Recently, Westarea Elementary honored military veterans with a stirring program. Ret. SFC Howard Lattimore, the State Level Military Consultant for NCDPI, reminded all present that freedom is not free. It is paid for by the hard work, sacrifices, and sometimes the very lives of military members and their families. Dr. Z. Backman, principal of Westarea Elementary, closed the program with remarks reiterating how Westarea honors all those who have served, especially those present.
