The students and staff of Benjamin Logan Local Schools would like to show appreciation to the local first responders who give so much of their time, talents and dedication to keeping our community safe.
First responders serving the school district will be honored Friday evening, Sept. 8, at the Benjamin Logan High School stadium at the Ben Logan vs. Bellefontaine football game.
Firefighters, paramedics, law enforcement, and other forms of first responders are asked to arrive at the football game before 6:30 p.m. in uniform at the pass gate and you will be admitted free into the game with identification.
From there, first responders are asked to meet at the south end of the track to await further instruction.
Immediate family members of first responders may also enter free.
“The need for brave individuals who help those in peril has been present for the entire history of our nation. Millions of men and women have answered this call since even before the founding of the United States, and many have sacrificed all to save others.
“Firefighters, paramedics, police officers, and other forms of First Responders perform their honorable duty on a daily basis. Many of these selfless feats were put on full display on one of the darkest days in American history: Sept. 11, 2001,” school officials said.
“Twenty-two years ago, our freedoms, which we all cherish, were attacked when innocent people died at the hands of those who do not appreciate these freedoms.
“However, just as our forefathers did, we came together as a country to aid those who were victims of the attacks. Our leaders in this time of crisis were not the politicians, but the first responders, who dedicated their lives to save and help others. The dedicated men and women of the emergency medical services, and the fire and police departments risked everything to save those who were in need.”
