Cranberry Area Jr./Sr. High School hosted its annual assembly in honor of our veterans. Venango County is home to many veterans from all branches of the military, and several attend this event.

During the assembly, the community members can be seen enjoying the performances by Cranberry’s junior high and senior high choruses. These performances were complemented by the playing of Cranberry’s band members.

In addition to this, a select group of students read poetry dealing with the topics of war, veterans, and soldiers lost in duty.

For the past three years at this event, Cranberry has given an alumni award to a Cranberry graduate who has been in the service. This year the alumnus who received this award was Jack Beebe, grandfather of recent Cranberry graduate Shay Harry who is currently himself serving in the U.S. Airforce.
