On November 11, 2020, CHS hosted the Veterans Day Program. Veterans were welcome to come to the program. The band started off the program by performing "Armed Forces March" while the veterans entered with the flags. The high school band also played the "Star Spangled Banner" to begin the program. Then the Student Body President, Braxton Brockhaus, led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance. After the pledge, the junior high choir sang "Thank You Soldier".

Following the junior high choir, Anthony Cook read his Voice of Democracy speech which received third place. Then, the high school band played "By Dawns Early Light." After the band, second place winner Katharina Rice delivered her Voice of Democracy speech. Following Katharina's speech, the high school choir sang "God Bless the U.S.A." Then, the winner of the Voice of Democracy contest, Jessica Stevens, delivered her speech.

After Jesscia Steven's speech, the veterans day address was delivered by Jessica Gragert with her speech.
