While most schools were off school on Veteran's Day, St. Ann school was in session to honor the local heroes in Nashville.
The event, Lunch With A Hero, allowed for students at St. Ann to spend a day answering questions and seeing the emergency vehicles of the Washington County EMS, Nashville Police Department, Washington County Sheriff, Illinois State Police and the Nashville Fire and Rescue.
Each class was visited by a couple members of the local heroes in Nashville and the students got to ask questions about their everyday workday.
Students asked questions about their weapons, how their vehicles worked, if they ever saved anyone, and their favorite thing about their jobs.
This was the first year that the event was held at St. Ann, and Principal Pierre Antoine says, he plans to continue the event every year. Everyone involved was treated to lunch, and recess after answering questions of the different classes.
Due to the fact that the students were in class on Veteran's Day, the students will now get off school one day earlier for Thanksgiving Break.
