United Veterans Council Award

United Veterans Council Award

Due to COVID restrictions, The United Veterans Council of the Youngstown Area only just recently awarded their Youth of the Year Award 2019 "for continued devotion to our Veterans" to the South Range students who were part of the Raiders DDay75 trip to Western Europe in June, 2019.

Accepting the award from Mr. Tom Moss, Sergeant-at-Arms for the UVC, is SRHS History teacher Paul Lindstrom, the Tour Leader and Andrei Pagnotta a student-traveler on the trip, representing his classmates who also were part of our journey.

We had 30 students research the lives of the boys from Youngstown who are buried in the American Cemetery in Normandy, France. We visited each gravesite, the student who researched that soldier read a short biographical paragraph about him and left a commemorative coin in remembrance of his sacrifice.
