Joliet Central High School Veterans Ceremony
On Thursday, November 10, Joliet Central High School will honor local veterans and those currently serving in the armed forces at its 6th annual Veterans Ceremony. This hour-long program begins at 2:20 p.m. in the Joliet Central auditorium located at 201 E. Jefferson Street in Joliet.  The public is invited to attend and veterans who will be present are encouraged to contact Kristine Schlismann, Director of Community & Alumni Relations, at (815) 727-6796 or
kschlismann@jths.org to be recognized at the event.  Visitors may arrive any time after 1:30 p.m.  Parking will be available in all lots and guests may enter the building through the Student Center Main Entrance or through the Auditorium Entrance off Eastern Avenue.

As this year marks the 75th anniversary of the Tuskegee Airmen, the theme of the ceremony celebrates African American veterans. Included among the cast of this very poignant ceremony are the JROTC Cadets; the Joliet Central Symphonic Band with a musical tribute representing each branch of the service; the Joliet Central Choirs offering patriotic hymns; ROTC Commander Phil Jayko reading “Duty, Honor, Country,” and moving student-produced video presentations.
