Watchung Hills Regional High School is in search of graduates who serve or have served in the U.S. Military from 1957 to recent years.
Watchung Hills Regional High School is dedicating a Wall Plaque to honor those who have served our country. A committee has been formed to acknowledge the servicemen and women from our communities. The committee hopes that local residents can help search for those graduates that have served.
New Jersey residents know the extraordinary service that the National Guard has provided our state in recent months and our military services that have served our country at home and abroad. The men and women in uniform selflessly give their time, energies, and too often their lives so that our freedom is protected. After 55years, the high school will be honoring our past, current and future generations with a ceremony the week of October 28, 2013 at the high school theatre in recognition of Veterans’ Day. The ceremony will include speakers, WHRHS Band, and a dedication of a wall plaque honoring our military. There will also be a “sign in” dedication book that will provide a record of our graduates who served. This book will be a part of the school archives. We want all our graduates who served to be remembered in this book.
If you know of anyone who is such a graduate or you are such a graduate, please log onto whrhs.org and go to the link: Graduates-Military Recognition and sign-in. If you have any questions, please contact Terry MacConnell at WHRHS. Information will be available through the high school website and papers.
We look forward to hearing from the residents of our communities who can help us in our search. More details will be made available about our dedication ceremony as we get closer to the event. Let’s all come together and honor our parents, spouses, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters and friends who have sowillingly served our country.
