Statewide OHSAA Military Appreciation Night Set for January 20
High schools across Ohio are asked to honor United States Armed Forces at athletic contests
COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio High School Athletic Association encourages Ohio high schools to take part in a statewide military appreciation night on January 20, honoring active and veteran United States Armed Forces members at athletic contests.
“Education-based athletics in the great state of Ohio are far more than winning and losing,” OHSAA assistant commissioner Jerry Snodgrass said. “High school athletics encompass everyone. They are a school and community event. This entire school involvement helps develop student leaders on the courts and fields of play as well as in the classrooms and student groups that support their teams. This initiative is designed to emphasize these great student leaders in our schools and their support for our military.”
