Boston Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Brenda Cassellius Statement on Veteran’s Day


I am deeply grateful to all of our veterans for their service to our country. On behalf of the students and staff of Boston Public Schools, I thank you for creating our opportunity as Americans to live in a democratic society that values and protects freedom and strives for equity and justice. As the proud daughter and partner of Air Force veterans, I also want to thank their families for their sacrifice. We are a stronger nation thanks to our active and retired service members, and we extend our gratitude for all that they have done and continue to do on behalf of our nation. And let us not forget the many men, women, and transgender veterans who have been lost in the line of duty, as we hold this day in honor of their enduring patriotism.
