The 5th grade team organized the program, and the 5th grade students led the entire program including the welcome, introductions, and closing.

The Deming High School JROTC presented the colors and Mrs. Au, Bataan’s Music Teacher, sang the National Anthem to open the program. The event was full of performances from students to honor our veterans, Mayor Benny Jasso read the Veterans Day Proclamation passed by the City of Deming, and Jay Block was the keynote speaker. A slide show was shown that honored the veterans and first responders who attended the program as well as veteran and first responder relatives of students, former students, and staff. The program concluded with a catered meal from Si Senor.

Adriana Huff created a video of the program to share with our veterans and community. The video link is and available on the Deming Public Schools website at
