The Riverside Veterans Wall of Honor - located inside of the Football Stadium - was unveiled to the community on Friday, September 13 during a public ceremony.
The Wall of Honor is Phase I of the Riverside Veterans Memorial Project. Phase II of the project is to list all the names of Riverside students and staff who have ever served in the military on an interactive kiosk that will be located inside the Riverside High School's main lobby. Donations are still being accepted to offset the costs for the second phase.
The Riverside Veterans Memorial project has been made possible by countless donations from local businesses, organizations and individuals.
