Spotlight on Service

Continuing in the spirit of Veterans Day, Meridian High School's ROTC cadets honored veterans at a luncheon Friday.

"We are trying to honor our veterans with all that is going on. They just mean a lot to us and they really should be appreciated for what they do," said ROTC cadet, Taneka Hunter.

"The cadets came up with the idea. They planned it. They did all the coordination and everything," said Lt. Col. Truitt Breazeale, ROTC commander.

The honorees all work for the Meridian public school district. The event was organized by the cadets as part of their community service requirements.
