CANNON COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL VETERANS WALL OF HONOR
Cannon County High School has a "Wall of Honor" to pay tribute to all of the men and women serving in the military forces of the United States today.
Mrs. Bonnie Patterson took on this project when the Iraq War came about and has done an outstanding job ensuring that all of the men and women serving in the military today from Cannon County are honored by placing an 8 X 10 color photo of each on the "Wall of Honor" at Cannon County High School.
If you know of someone serving in the military today and is not on the "Wall of Honor" at the Cannon County High School please notify Bonnie Patterson so we can get an 8 X 10 photo on the wall. The young adults attending CCHS need to know who our heroes are, serving and making great sacrifices for this great country and this wonderful peace we all enjoy.
