A New Hampshire High school unveiled their plans to create a Veterans Wall Memorial to honor all of the veterans who graduated from their school.
In 2014, the Alumni Association for Bishop Brady High School and St. John’s School, both Catholic schools, in Concord, NH, held a Veterans breakfast to honor all of the veteran alumni who served in the United States Armed Forces. Following the breakfast, a school-wide ceremony was held to recognize and honor the veterans.
This year, the Alumni Association unveiled the Veterans Wall Memorial prototype. This prototype came in addition to the Veterans breakfast and the school-wide ceremony where the entire student body, faculty and staff honor the veteran alumni.
The Veterans Wall Memorial will have an American flag design and will be 10 feet by 6 feet. In the waving stripes, there will be small plaques with the names of each veteran alumni.
The Veteran Wall Memorial will then be placed permanently on a wall between the school chapel and the library.
The total cost for the memorial will be $8,000 due to engraving, shipping, hardware and installation. The sponsorship for each plaque is $25. General donations for the memorial are also needed to pay for it. All sponsors receive an invitation to the 2016 Alumni Veterans Day Breakfast, which includes the unveiling of the memorial on November 10.
The deadline to order the Veterans Wall Memorial is August 15.
