Aurora -- Every year, students at Valley Christian Academy have a unique opportunity to give back and honor those who have served the country.

This year the fifth-grade class honored the nation's heroes with a veterans Day Assembly, Nov. 9 at the East Boulevard school.

As part of the project, individual students interviewed a veteran and invited them to the assembly. Attendees sang "God Bless America" and offered a video tribute showcasing "then and now" photos of veterans.

Proper folding of the American flag was explained, and two students read essays to the veterans.

Veterans had a chance to share their experiences and stories. At the conclusion of the assembly, veterans, staff and students took a group picture.

A number of Twinsburg students attend the ecumenical academy.
