Columbiana Exempted Village School District is inviting veterans and their families to its annual Veterans Day Ceremony on November 8, 2019. 

The program involves the entire school district, students K-12. The day will start off with a complimentary breakfast for veterans at 8:45 a.m. in the high school commons. New this year, students can have breakfast with their veteran. Students and adult non-veteran guests are asked to pay $1 per person for breakfast.

Following the breakfast, veterans are invited to a program thanking them for their service. The program is in the high school gym, and will include music and speeches from elementary, middle and high school students.  The guest speaker  is David Oesch, a CHS 1985 graduate and retired veteran who served in several branches of the military.

The program will also include a slideshow honoring those who have served and are currently serving.  Photos for the slideshow can also be submitted to Megan Cowan by emailing her at  Pictures can also be sent to school with a student to be scanned.
