Highland Hills Middle School Celebrates Veterans with Purple Star Display

It may appear to just be a display of photos and artwork. However, for students and staff members at Highland Hills Middle School, it’s much more.
Those photos and artwork showing soldiers serves as a daily reminder to students and staff of the sacrifices made by veterans.
“It gives the staff and students a little perspective on why we have the freedoms in our country that we have,” said Christopher Smith, SAL Coordinator at Highland Hills. “It makes me proud.”
