Milford School District will continue its tradition of honoring veterans at its November Board of Education meeting. The Board will award high school diplomas to veterans who did not earn a diploma because their education was interrupted to serve their country in times of war.  It is the eighth year that the district has awarded diplomas to veterans.

In addition to presenting diplomas, all area veterans are invited to come to the November Board meeting and they will be recognized for their service at the beginning of the meeting. If they choose to, veterans are welcome to come in uniform. There will be a short program with patriotic music and a presentation of certificates. The Board meets on Thursday, November 19, 2015 at Meadowview Elementary, at 7 p.m.

Prior to the November Board meeting, our buildings will be collecting donations for the Troop Box Ministries. Representatives from each of our schools will be at the Board meeting to present the troop boxes and donations for postage to a representative from Troop Box Ministries.

If you are a veteran or know of a veteran, who did not earn his or her diploma because of being in the armed service, please contact the Milford Board of Education Office at (513) 831-1314 by Friday, November 13. Veterans who will be attending for the recognition should also RSVP to Terry Kruszynski at or by calling (513) 831-1314.
