(Hillsboro) The Hillsboro R-3 School District is the first school in the entire United States to be a POW/MIA designated campus. Hillsboro schools recently earned that distinction, and are now flying the POW/MIA flags in front of several of their school buildings. Scott Readnour is the Principal at Hillsboro Intermediate. He explains an important display the school is now showcasing to raise awareness.
Readnour says they are also using the distinction in the classroom.
The POW/MIA designated campus also touches higher education as The College of Ozarks in Point Lookout, Missouri is the second school campus to earn the honor.
