On November 11th, Veterans Day, the NHS took the opportunity to thank those who devoted their lives to this country by exhibiting photographs of High Tech’s family and friends who served in the U.S. military.

“We wanted to thank those family members, friends, former students, and colleagues of High Tech,” says Joan Marie Bellotti, Language Arts instructor and co-moderator of the High Tech National Honor Society with Social Studies teacher David Polito, “in order to bring awareness to our community of the sacrifice of our men and women.”
