Veterans plaque dedicated, 1946

Posted on May 28, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

In exercises at University High School on April 10, 1946, tribute was paid to the 200 former University High and training school students who participated in World War II and a plaque bearing their names was dedicated. Shown here, left to right, are James Glenn, U-Hi student, who had charge of arrangements, Dr. Ellis F. Hartford, University professor of education, who made the presentation, and Prof. Lyman V. Ginger, school director, who accepted the plaque. Today we observe Memorial Day, a federal holiday for remembering the people who died while serving in our country’s armed forces.
