DHS to host graduation for veterans
The Danville schools will conduct a special graduation for World War II veterans at the 7 p.m. Nov. 18 board meeting at Danville High School.
To publicly honor those who sacrificed and contributed to the country's defense in time of war, the board will award honorary high school diplomas to honorably discharged veterans who did not complete their high school education to serve in the war efforts.
The veterans must be honorably discharged and served in the military during World War II or the Korean War. Family members of deceased veterans may request an honorary diploma be awarded posthumously in the veteran's honor. Verification is needed of honorable discharge and school enrollment. A copy of discharge papers or proof of veteran benefits plus information on the last school attended is required.
