HIGH POINT — Sacrifice and service were the key words that speakers repeated Thursday at High Point University’s 11th annual Veterans Day Celebration.

More than 1,000 attending the event at the Nido and Mariana Qubein Arena and Conference Center were invited to have their photo taken with Clark, the bald eagle that soared over the crowd as the HPU Chamber Singers sang “America the Beautiful,” and to take home a long-sleeved purple HPU shirt. Veterans of all military branches were recognized, asked to sign a star and rewarded with patriotic blankets to take home.
