Recognizing our LT Family on Veterans Day

November 11, 2021

Dear LT Family,

Veterans Day is a time to pause and recognize all who served, and who currently serve, in our country’s armed forces. 

Our military personnel work tirelessly to ensure we can go about the business of our school day and focus on the needs of the next generation of veterans. We honor these men and women for their service, sacrifice, and love of country.   
 
In particular, I want to take a moment to thank those members of our LT family for their military service. These men and women are real-life superheroes walking among us each day. They serve as role models for our students, inspiring honor, respect and patriotism for the greatest country in the world:
