At Paxton High School, the elementary celebrated Veteran's Day with a program for all elementary students, teachers, and the families of the students. One student in particular, Kaden Graham, celebrated with his family of veterans. Kaden's family holds Veteren's Day with great importance and understands the sacrifice of military families. Kaden's grandfather, a veteran, expressed his appreciation for the Veteran's Day program. Kaden's father was unable to attend the program, as he is currently serving his 7th deployment. In honor of his father, Kaden wore his father's jacket and carried a picture of his dad. Kaden and his family can be seen in the attached picture. Submitted by Kalli McMillan
