For Dublin Scioto High School students, Nov. 9 will be a day to share stories about friends and family members who have sacrificed to serve their country.

From 3:30 to 6 p.m. Nov. 9 at Scioto, 4000 Hard Road, students will share story boards they made detailing the service of veterans.

Students also will have an opportunity to talk one-on-one with veterans about their experiences.

Scioto Principal Bob Scott said this is the fourth time Scioto has presented the event.

"It is the most inspirational thing you'll ever see," he said.

"This is an opportunity to celebrate the service of our veterans within our community," Scott said.

John Witt, a U.S. history teacher at Scioto, said many of the students who participate are sophomores who create story boards for class assignments.

Students in other grades, however, have also decided they would like to participate.

"It's become a schoolwide event," Witt said.

Students will display their story boards from veterans they've interviewed, Witt said, and during the event's opening ceremony, Col. Chip Tansill, director of veterans affairs for the state of Ohio, will serve as keynote speaker and recognize faculty members who are veterans or still in service.
