Military Family Resources
The Ohio Department of Education selected Milford High School as a 2018 Purple Star designee. The Purple Star Award for military-friendly schools recognizes schools that show a major commitment to students and families connected to our nation’s military.
In a letter to the district, Paolo DeMaria wrote, "We applaud and appreciate your outstanding commitment to serving military students and families in your school. Your dedicated program truly serves as an inspiring model for other schools in Ohio to follow."
The effort to designate Milford as a Purple Heart School was led by Milford High School social studies teacher Greg Rose. Mr. Rose has also reached out to the City of Milford to become a Purple Heart City.
In addition to a plaque and a Purple Heart banner for the high school, signs will be posted in the parking lot to reserve spots for Purple Heart recipients.
