Harrison Elementary is a Purple Star School!

The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) today announced 21 newly-designated Purple Star schools. Schools receiving the Purple Star designation are awarded for their significant display of commitment to service members, veterans and students and families connected to our nation’s military.

“Our service members and their families make sacrifices daily on behalf of our country in order to keep us safe and protect the freedoms we enjoy as Americans,” said Dr. Katie Jenner, Indiana Secretary of Education. “Highlighting this service and sacrifice year-round is a priority for our state, and it is an honor to award the Purple Star designation to Indiana schools that emphatically recognize and celebrate our military families, as well as support current students who are considering a future that may include enlistment leading to service.”
