TOPEKA (KSNT) – An area technical school thanked veterans Tuesday morning.

Washburn Tech hosted a patriotic ceremony at the Conference Center on their campus.

The event featured talents of many Washburn Tech students as they honored those who have served our country.

There are approximately 30 vets currently enrolled in career programs at the school.

November 11th has been recognized as a day to honor veterans since 1919.

The date was chosen because of the armistice or cease fire that stopped fighting in World War I went into effect on this day.
