POW/MIA Vigil 2023

We are thrilled to share some heartwarming news that truly honors the collective efforts of Hillsboro R-III Schools to Remember and Honor the sacrifices made by our servicemen and servicewomen.

Excerpt from Paul Dillon’s Email: (POW/MIA Museum)

"On page 4 of the newsletter they recognize and salute the Hillsboro R-3 School District for this year’s and past years' POW-MIA Remembrance Events, and all that you do to Remember and Honor the service and sacrifice of our servicemen and servicewomen. You all deserve this Recognition and much more. Please let the students, faculty, staff, coaches, parents, and Mayor there in Hillsboro know how very much you all are appreciated!"

We extend our sincere thanks to Paul and the A-37 Association for this special recognition.

Excerpt from Kathy Lawton Brown's Email: (sang God Bless America at this year's event)

"What Hillsboro does each year is simply inspiring. Seeing all these young lives and the Hillsboro community being touched by TRUE heroism and character is an inestimable gift - not only to the students but to our country's future. I wonder if Mike would have ever, in his wildest dreams, thought that he was touching the lives of hundreds of young people... Character. Dedication. Service."

We take pride in our POW-MIA Remembrance Events and are committed to imparting the values of heroism, character, dedication, and service to our students and community.

This is a community achievement and we extend our deepest thanks to our students, faculty, coaches, parents, and Mayor for making this possible.

Let's continue to make our community a beacon of patriotism and valor.

Dr. Jon Isaacson
