Columbia Central Virtual Veterans Day Assembly

Our Veterans Day Virtual Assembly will be a memorable event. We are grateful to those who have served our country. It is always a privilege to share this day with our local Veterans. We are fortunate to have members of the armed forces among our CCCJH/HS staff. Thank you to Mr. Rob Riedel, SSG, NBC, who served in the Army National Guard, for your contributions to our country.

We are hosting our annual Veterans Day Assembly virtually this year. Please check our building Facebook page, Twitter and school website to access this assembly on November 11. We have worked together as a district to share our pride and gratitude for those who have served in the armed forces.

If you have any photos of a veteran you would like to honor in our virtual assembly, please email them to by Tuesday, November 10. Please include their name, branch of military, rank and relationship to student/family.
