Turpin Veterans Honor Wall

This new display, located outside the auxiliary gym within the new athletic entrance, will individually honor members of the Turpin High School family (students, faculty, and support staff) who are military veterans, or are actively serving now.

Equally important, this wall will serve as a perpetual reminder to current students that exceptional educational opportunities stem largely from the patriotism, dedication, and courage of military veterans across America, like the men and women whose names are enshrined on the THS Veterans Honor Wall.
