Stevens High School. He inspired the Lewis students with a heartfelt speech about the meaning of Veterans Day. The
Lewis Student Council greeted guests and Garret Reger along with, Angel Bierce hosted the program. Lewis students
and staff filled the hallways with tributes to Veterans. Awards were given for the "What My Country Means to Me"

an honor for the students of Bob Lewis to have this personal opportunity to express their appreciation to the veterans
of their community!
