This is the second year that our GTENNIS team has participated in this event.
I am also the Social Studies Department Head here at Leominster High School and we do quite a bit of work with the Veterans groups here in the city.
As such, I was approached last year by my contact to see if they could secure some LHS students to participate in the National Vietnam Veterans Day Ceremony. Initially, I informed him that I probably could, but I would not be in attendance as I would be in season with my team on March 29th.
It then occurred to me that I had a built in group of talented young people who may be interested in participating. I broached the topic with my captains and they all agreed that it would make for a great experience and allow for some team bonding as well.
Needless to say, our participation was a big hit with both the young woman on my team as well as the veterans.
We have now participated each of the past two years and I hope to make this an annual event for us for years to come. (information provided by Coach Daryl Robichaud)
