WOODRING WALL OF HONOR and VETERANS PARK

"To Remember, Honor, Educate, and Heal"

Legacy Awards Ceremony

The Legacy: From the Greatest Generation to the Latest Generation

On Monday evening, November 10th, at the Chisholm Trail Expo Center, the Legacy Award Ceremony celebrated the service of our past and present military and honored the youth of today.

The Wall of Honor hosted the award ceremony to pay tribute to their volunteers, the winners of the youth patriotic poster/essay contest, and to honor five area Veterans of the Year.

The patriotic poster and essay contest is driven through the public and private schools and was judged by the Enid Art Association and a panel of military veterans and volunteers.
