Veterans Day is November 11th

Join us as we honor the sacrifices of our veterans.  There will be no school for students on this day.

For the past 15 years, Johnston County Public Schools has honored our local veterans with a special Veterans Day celebration program.

The 2020 celebration will be held virtually on Wednesday, Nov. 11. The online program begins at 11 a.m., and a link to the program will be posted to the JCPS Veterans Day webpage once it is available.

Following the online celebration, all Johnston County veterans are invited to join us at Smithfield-Selma High School for a curbside meal from 12 p.m.-2 p.m. There will also be a small in-person celebration at the school, and veterans will be given the 2020 commemorative event pin.

This event is a joint effort by our high school JROTC cadets, All-County Chorus, and All-County Band. All Johnston County veterans are welcome to attend.
