McJimpsey spoke to Carver students about overcoming fears and pushing on, even when life is tough. 

In addition to McJimpsey's message, the celebration included a white tablecloth ceremony to honor fallen heroes, student performances and the presentation of the colors by the Spartanburg High ROTC.

All veterans, including McJimpsey, were invited to a reception following the assembly.
