Newnan High School resumed its Student-Vet Connect program on May 13 at the Jackson-Pless Armory. The school’s history and social studies department had been set to celebrate its 25th anniversary in the spring of 2019 but COVID-19 shutdowns prevented the event from taking place. After a two-year delay caused first by the COVID-19 pandemic and then by the March 2021 tornado, the event got underway with more than 50 military veterans sharing their memorabilia and their experiences with history students at NHS.
