Annual Hillsboro POW/MIA recognition football game is this Friday

Hillsboro High School will hold a POW/MIA Recognition ceremony before Friday night’s football game against North County.

Hillsboro is the first POW/MIA designated school campus in the country.

The designation was followed with the idea of having a remembrance night football game.

Gates to the football field open at 5 with a ceremony starting around 5:30.

The football game itself has been moved back to 7:30 to allow time for the ceremony.

Intermediate school Principal Scott Readnour says this is the second year they have hosted the recognition football game and they will be honoring five individuals.

Readnour adds the nights focus will be on a lot more than just football.

Once again Hillsboro High School will hold a POW/MIA Recognition ceremony before Friday night’s football game.

Festivities start around 5:30 with kickoff between the Hawks and Raiders slated for 7:30pm.
