PHS plans wall for those who gave all
Wednesday, August 08, 2018
PIQUA — Driven by the desire to “recognize our graduates that are veterans and the sacrifices they have given for our country,” Principal Rob Messick and others at Piqua High School have been inspired to build a veteran’s wall inside the main high school entrance.
“We started talking about it last fall when we were going through the whole renovations conversation. We really wanted to recognize students, former students, that have gone into the military,” Messick said.
In addition to recognizing alumni who have joined the Armed Forces, the wall — projected to be completed in the fall — will serve as a way to remind students that going into the military is also a potential career opportunity and to expose them to the role models and experiences that can be gained from joining the armed services.
