THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) -

Some Veterans got a front row seat to a special ceremony in Thomas County.

Students honored the veterans Friday at Thomas County Middle School.

Both the chorus and band played tunes like the "Star Spangled Banner" and "My America"

Their special guest speaker was former Superintendent Dr. Larry Green.

His grandson attends the school.

"It's a privilege, one to be a veteran, and to be able to share with you today on Veteran's Day," said Dr. Reed.

Students created a Wall of Honor in the front lobby of the school to honor veterans in their lives and those they have studied.
