CENTER LINE/WARREN/STERLING HEIGHTS — As the nation observes Veterans Day Nov. 11, two local schools are holding events to thank veterans for their service to our nation. Because of COVID-19, the celebrations are different than in past years, but the tributes are just as heartfelt.

The Center Line High School Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps Panther Battalion will hold a virtual ceremony Nov. 11 that will feature speakers. Members have solicited the names of local veterans to be included in a video presentation. The slide show will include photos, branch of service, time served and the veterans’ ranks.

The ceremony will be posted on the JROTC’s social media sites, including Instagram (@CLHSJROTC), Twitter (@JROTC_CLHS), and Facebook (@Center Line High School Army JROTC). It will also be posted on the school’s YouTube page at www.youtube.com/user/CenterLineSchools.

The culinary arts students at the Warren Consolidated Schools Career Preparation Center also will remember veterans this year. In the past, the students have prepared brunch in the school’s cafe. This year though, they have prepared bags of sweet treats for all service members.

Veterans are invited to drive up to the CPC building from 9 to 11 a.m. Nov. 13 for a goodie bag. All are asked to drive up to door No. 1. The CPC building is located at 12200 15 Mile Road in Sterling Heights.

In addition, the National Technical Honor Society also made a video for Mission 22. The students generally do 22 push-ups every day, leading up to Veterans Day, to raise money and awareness. The video can be viewed at youtu.be/8Y9WHM6TTaY.
