Kenston Forest School held a special program to remember and honor America’s veterans Friday, Nov. 10. The colors were presented by the Nottoway High School Navy Junior ROTC Color Guard. Mrs. Patricia Mahaney sang the national anthem. Special music was provided by Ben Dalton of Kenbridge, and JD Rimon and Sophie Crowder of South Hill. The guest speaker was Clarence Singleton. Singleton is a motivational speaker, author, a former United States Marine, a veteran of the Vietnam War, and a Purple Heart Medal recipient. He is also a decorated former New York City firefighter whose unit responded to the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, where he was credited with saving numerous lives. After retiring from the FDNY in 2000, Singleton volunteered for duty Sept. 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center, where he was seriously injured and was featured in One Nation: America Remembers Sept. 11, 2001 by the authors of Life Magazine.
