Patriot Parade at MECC - students sitting by the road waiting for the Patriot Parade at MECC. Students were dressed in the colors red, white, blue and held up their flags.

In honor of Patriot Day, our local heroes came together for a parade for students at MECC. We deeply appreciate the men and women who serve our community and our nation. Our students' smiles were truly the brightest lights today. 🚓We are thankful for our HEROES:

■ Ambulance Services
■ Barry and Lawrence Law Enforcement
■ Conservation Agents
■ Fire Station
■ Military
■ Monett Police Department

The Hero Parade laid the groundwork for a deeper understanding as our MECC students grow older and encounter more detailed history lessons about 9/11.
