Supervisor of Elections and Pasco County Schools Sponsor Veterans Day Ceremony 

Pasco County FL - Brian E. Corley, Supervisor of Elections, Pasco County, in conjunction with Pasco County Schools, will celebrate the 2nd annual district-wide Veterans Day Ceremony on November 11, 2015, at 9:00 a.m. at Center for the Arts at River Ridge.  The ceremony, an event to honor and celebrate our veterans for the sacrifices they have made to secure our freedom, will be videotaped and made available to all 70,000 students in 84 schools districtwide.    

Superintendent Kurt S. Browning and Brian Corley will offer opening remarks followed by keynote speaker Congressman Gus Bilirakis. The River Ridge ROTC will present the colors and perform the flag folding ceremony.  The flag, an official one that was flown over the capitol in Washington, D.C., will be presented to a veteran who is a Pasco County Schools alumni.  Music will be provided by River Ridge Middle and High Schools, and the Cypress Elementary School Chorus. 

Our partnership with Pasco County Schools is an extension of our Vote in Honor of a Vet program and our annual high school voter registration drive.  The high school registration drive will take place immediately following the ceremony at all Pasco County High Schools.  Elections' Office Ambassadors will be available to register and/or pre-register eligible high school students. 

The River Ridge Center for the Arts is located at 11646 Town Center Road, New Port Richey, and the public is invited to attend.
