RJH students make $1,000 donation to Veterans Memorial Park

Students at Rolla Junior High School recently presented a $1,000 donation to Jerry Bumpus, Chairman of the South Central Regional Veterans Group (SCRVG) and Les Burris, Treasurer, Korean War Veterans Association Chapter #281. 

Pictured (l to r) are: Courtney Spencer, Nina McCabe, Emma Laney, Les Burris, Jerry Bumpus, Josh Leon, Blake Transano, and Zack Benson.

The generous donation will be used for the continued development of Veterans Memorial Park, an 11-acre City of Rolla park located on Southview Drive off of Hwy. 72.

The students also raised additional funds to purchase a print for the Veteran’s Hallway at Rolla Jr. High, and for various other veterans’ projects. (Photo by Coach David Croft, RJH History Teacher)
