Laguna Beach High to dedicate Wall of Honor

Laguna Beach High School will hold a Wall of Honor dedication at 10 a.m. Saturday in the North Gym in recognition of students who serve our country in the military.

Principal Don Austin said he expects a large crowd for the event.

“The response from alumni has been incredible," he said. “People are flying to the event from around the country."


The ceremony will include a welcome and Pledge of Allegiance by Austin, National Anthem by Thurston Middle School student Karina Parker, remarks by Laguna Beach High senior and Eagle Scout Nate Wilson and Laguna Beach High Alumni Assn. President Howard Hills and a closing by WHO? Walt Hamera.

Wilson created a memorial for all Laguna Beach High students and alumni who served in the military during the school’s 75 years of history, including a special section for former students who were killed in action.

More than 200 names are honored on the wall, arranged according to their branch of service.
