Military Wall Of Honor at Coopersville High School

Military Wall Of Honor at Coopersville High School

Warren Warber, a recently retired teacher from Coopersville High School, has started a project of remembrance. Warren was the industrial arts teacher for many, many years at the school. Although he was never able to enter any of the military branches because of a broken back, he  wants to have members of the military who graduated from Coopersville,  remembered on a wall near the high school’s west entrance where students getting on and off the buses each day are made aware of the sacrifices of war.

The Coopersville Rotary along with several other veterans groups are working with Mr. Warber on this project. The wall has been erected and now it is just a matter of people submitting their photo and military records to be posted on the wall. Several veterans from World War II have already sent their information along. Information and photos should be sent to: Wall of Honor, Coopersville Area Public Schools, 198 East St., Coopersville, MI. 49404
