Elwood-John H. Glenn High School held its annual Memorial Day ceremony on May 25 to honor the men and women who have served in the U.S. military.

Members of the community, including the American Legion, the Elwood Taxpayers Association and the Elwood Union Free School District, gathered to commemorate the day. Under the direction of music teacher Rachel Nagle, the high school’s select chorus performed the national anthem. In addition, student Sean Donovan performed taps on trumpet.

During the ceremony, Class of 2015 members Thomas Krauss, Jacob Pagan and Anthony Sgambati presented the ceremonial red, white and blue wreath to display in front of the school. These three seniors plan to serve their country and enter the military this summer.
