CLARKSVILLE — Progress continues on the privately funded memorial honoring Clinton-Massie graduates and community members who have served their country.

Workers from Laser Imaging & Design, a state-of-the-art laser etching company in Lebanon, set the granite markers in place near the high school on Wednesday afternoon.

Each of the markers represent a different branch of the military and include images permanently etched into solid blocks of granite. According to Superintendent Matt Baker, the next steps will include installing paver stones and benches at the memorial.

Baker expressed his appreciation for all the community members and organizations who have donated funds for the memorial.

“Private funding from community members and local veterans agencies have covered all costs associated with the memorial so far, but we will need further donations to fully complete the project,” said Baker.

A dedication ceremony will be announced at a future date when the work has been completed. If you would like to donate to the memorial, please contact Baker at 937-289-2471.
