J.F. Burns Elementary had a special in early December. Pete LuPiba, Education Designee of the Military Interstate Children's Compact Commission and Representative for Ohio's Purple Star School Designation Program spent some time with Mrs. Montag and military-connected students, Jillian Macke and Solomon Redford.
He is visiting the 400 Purple Star schools across the state. JFB received the Ohio Purple Star designation in 2017 and was renewed in 2021. Purple Star Schools are those that are recognized for their commitment to serving students and families that are connected to the United States Armed Services and known as "Military Friendly Schools."
Mr. Lupiba presented Mrs. Montag and the students of JFB a new-minted Challenge Coin which is given to all Purple Star Schools for their support of the military.
