2023 Veterans Day breakfast hosted by Ada students, faculty and staff

In keeping with longstanding tradition, the Ada Schools hosted area veterans and their families at a 2023 Veterans Day breakfast. This year some 80 people attended the breakfast which included a program by Brian Clum, Commander of Ada VFW Post 9381.

The November 10 event included cards, letters and posters for the veterans that were created by Ada students. Senior fall athletes came to show support for the veterans and serve their breakfast needs. Teachers, staff and coaches decorated and cooked breakfast–while the school observed a holiday in honor of veterans.

Retired teacher Dave Lusk opened the program and led guests in prayer, then introduced Clum as the morning’s speaker. Mathew Frazier performed Taps.

Clum is a Master Sergeant (Retired) and 1987 graduate of Allen East High School. He enlisted in the Ohio Army National Guard as a Combat Medic in April 1986 as a Junior in High School. He transferred to active duty with the U.S. Air Force and served from 1988-1992 at Grand Forks Air Force Base, ND as Security Police in the Minuteman III Missile Complex.
