Wapakoneta City Schools board members shared kudos from the community during a regular meeting Tuesday.
Ron Mertz first complimented the Wapakoneta High School band on outstanding performances during the football season and then said he recently had a knock on his door with a personal thank you from the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) for a program held for veterans at Wapakoneta Middle School.
He commented on the respect shown the veterans, many of whom said they would never miss the program.
â€śThe students stood up and clapped when the first veteran walked in the door until the last one came through,â€ť Mertz said.
