For the second year in a row, Northside ISD will honor members of the military (active duty and veterans) and first responders during America’s Heroes Week, Sept. 19-24. Those with military ID or in uniform will receive free admission to all varsity football and volleyball games.
Before the varsity football games at Farris and Gus stadiums, members of the military will be asked to go to the north end zone to be recognized during the performing of the patriotic song. During the halftime show, the marching bands from both schools will present a musical tribute to all branches of the military. Football helmets will include American flag decals.
“Being in a military town, we thought it was important to show our respect to those who put their lives on the line and make sacrifices for us every day,” says Stan Laing, Executive Director of Athletics.
