Watauga County Schools Annual Thanksgiving Meal

November 16, 2023 was an exciting day in our school cafeterias! It was the highly-anticipated annual school Thanksgiving meal, which is a favorite for students and staff!

Our School Nutrition department does a fantastic job EVERY day and the annual Thanksgiving meal is no exception. School administrators and district leaders, including Superintendent Dr. Leslie Alexander lended a hand to ensure everything ran smoothly!
