SPANISH FORK — Students at Sierra Bonita School honored the legacy of the U.S. national anthem with an assembly on Monday morning.
The schoolwide assembly gave the history of "The Star-spangled Banner" and incorporated different art elements to highlight all four verses. The school choir recognized local military men and women while singing a medley of the armed forces theme songs. Tami Pyfer, education adviser to Gov. Gary Herbert, was the keynote speaker, and the school concluded by singing “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood.
The national anthem was written by Francis Scott Key in 1814.
