Tucson High Badger Foundation to dedicate WWII memorial

  • Updated

A part of the engraved-brick walkway at Tucson High School’s Hall of Champions honors veterans who attended the school.

The Tucson High Badger Foundation will have a dedication ceremony to honor school alumni who served in World War II on Saturday, Oct. 23.

The foundation sold Badger Bricks to be used in a walkway as a fundraiser and memorial. Each brick was engraved with the name of the veteran and other information.

The dedication includes an open house from 1 to 4 p.m., at the Tucson High School Galleria, 400 N. Second Ave. The dedication program begins at 2 p.m. It will include keynote speaker Col. Michael Butler, USMC Ret., from the Tucson High Class of 1962 and a reading of the military names.

There is no charge to attend. The Badger Foundation would like to be prepared for the number of attendees, so those who plan to go should email Jerry Strutz, chairman of the foundation, at jstrutz1@cox.net
