The Holocaust Memorial and Veterans’ tribute was on April 21, 2016. The ceremony started out with Callie Fabian and Shelby Rickwartz singing “The National Anthem”. The candle lighting was done by Chase Ott and the prayer was read by Brittany Traylor. Coach Myers gave a beautiful speech presenting the Barnett-Stern Center for Holocaust remembrance and introduced Wanda Guinn, who made a series of five hour long videos about our guest speaker, Meryl Barnett, and his experiences in WWII. Unfortunately, Mr. Barnett was unable to be with us due to illness. The video that was presented was the fifth in the series and the videos can be found at the Hutchinson County museum. In the video Mr. Barnett talked about his experience at Dachau, the notorious concentration camp just outside of Munich in Germany.

The Penny Project and presentation from FYIS was after the video where Jordan Farmer and Coach Myers poured the pennies raised by FYIS into an octagon shaped display case. The presentation was concluded and refreshments were served.
