LANSING, Ill. (November 1, 2017) – Recently, members of TF South class of 1967 gave a donation of $925 to the TF South Wall of Honor, which lists all military personnel who attended high school at TF South. Nancy Hill, Kathy Poe, and Linda Todd’s donation will help purchase lighting and stanchions to further enhance the memorial.

Other recent Wall of Honor donors include: Patricia Walsh (1969), the parents of John Ulaszek (1990), the Lansing Veterans Memorial Honor Guard, and Ms. Laura Martini.

Other Wall of Honor updates include recent additions to the list of names displayed.

“We believe that all our military personnel should be honored for their bravery and courage,” said District 215 Superintendent Dr. Creg Williams. “We have recently updated the list of names in time for Veteran’s Day on November 11.”

To request the addition of an alumni veteran’s name to the Wall of Honor, contact Chris Roberts at [email protected].

The Wall of Honor is displayed in the school’s front lobby and may be viewed by the public. Visitors need photo identification when entering the school.

TF South High School is located at 18500 Burnham Avenue in Lansing, Illinois.
