On November 11, 2013, Veterans Day, SAMS took time to honor all of our veterans both past and present. Mrs. Sullivan, a Guidance Counselor, read a story about the origin of the musical piece, Taps. Taps is sounded at dusk, and at funerals, particularly by the U.S. Military. It is one of the most recognized pieces of military music in the United States.
Under the direction of Mr. Brawley, SAMS Band and General Music Teacher, the following students played Taps over the schools PA system for everyone to hear: Casey Koepp, Nathan Hammond, and Robert Harker.
Thank you students for a job well done, and thank you Veterans for your service.
