A Veterans Memorial Honor Wall was added to the Kewaunee High School on Thursday. Through the funding help of local veterans organizations, the Kewaunee School District approved the display that acknowledges Kewaunee alumni who were killed in action while serving in the military. Director of Buildings and Grounds Jason Karnopp, who helped coordinate the efforts, says the ideas began a few years ago but really gained momentum recently.
The tribute wall features 11 individuals with photos and special messages. "Freedom is never free" is the theme of the Veterans Honor Roll which is placed between the high school gymnasiums.
