The Westlake Demon Athletic Boosters would like to invite one and all to come out to Westlake High School to see the Westlake Demon Athletics Veterans Day Display. 25 Athletic teams from Westlake High School and Lee Burneson Middle School, along with the Athletic Department, have each planted a flag in honor of our American Veterans.
Flags are planted in honor of our veterans along Hilliard Blvd in front of the High School.
Many of the honorees are local veterans, or family and friends of Westlake student-athletes, coaches and administrators.
This year, honorees from years past are also recognized on a large sign. The flag display will be available through Sunday, November 12th. This is the fifth year of the display.
“Each veteran has a connection to the Westlake athletic community. They are grandparents, neighbors, friends, uncles, aunts, and cousins. Signs featuring specific honorees accompany the display. One large sign highlights all the honorees from the inception of the program,” reports Jane Peer of the WDAB.
Veteran’s Day is Sat., Nov. 11. Thank you, veterans!
