Armed Forces Career Commitment Ceremony for Ohio high school students
Honor, tradition and service are the hallmarks the members of the United States military live by each day, and Ohioans have made countless storied contributions to our nation’s history. Ohio continues this legacy as its education community gathers to recognize high school students joining the military at the Third Annual All-Ohio United States Armed Forces Career Commitment Celebration.
The celebration will take place at COSI (Center of Science and Industry), 333 West Broad Street, Columbus, on Wednesday, March 11 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Students in grades 11-12 who have committed to military service, including active duty, Reserve or National Guard are invited to take part. Registration is required.
Last year, at the Second Annual All-Ohio Armed Forces Career Commitment Celebration, more than 300 Ohio high school students signed documents committing to serve in a U.S. military branch. Those class of 2019 members now are serving across the globe.
Seating is limited, so each student may bring only two guests, which can include family members, school staff, recruiters or friends. Students and guests should register quickly before the event reaches capacity. Registration will close Monday, March 2 or earlier if seating is full.
The Ohio Department of Education, Ohio Department of Veterans Services, Ohio National Guard and United Services Organization invite education leaders to forward this invitation to grade 11 and 12 students who already have committed to the military.
