The final Confirmed List of Names, organized alphabetically by graduating class year, just as it will appear on the actual Memorial is what we will continue to publish from this point forward!  To review the final list, please go to this month's Update in the Honoring Our Veterans tab of this issue of HixNews.
Good progress continues on Memorial construction.  The Memorial's footers were poured in May and the center stone was ordered.  Upon ordering the stone, we learned that delivery lead times are currently running from 6 to 8 weeks, so we expect to have the center stone, with both the Memorial's dedication and KIA plaques, fully mounted on the Memorial's footers NLT mid-July.  We will be ordering the nameplates for the entire Confirmed List of Names this month, along with the remaining two stones upon which they will be mounted, one left and one right of the center stone.  More details, to include the projected Memorial Dedication time frame, are also included in this month's Update, along with the latest information on donations.
We trust all reader's had an enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend and were able to spend some time remembering those close to them who paid the ultimate price in service to our country.

Many of you have not used the opportunity of sharing precious moments with other classmates. Itís not too late to submit a sketch to be included in the Alumni Bio Section (click the link on the left to go to the bios section) of the newsletter. We are including a writeable document that you can fill in on you computer and, after completing the document, forward to
