Virtual Memorial Day Ceremony
Join us for a reimagined Memorial Day ceremony this year: a recorded ceremony that will be streamed at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 25, on several platforms to enable viewing from anywhere. Watch the ceremony, created by PSU at the Veterans Memorial.

Serving as emcee will be PSU ROTC Cadet Esperanza S. Deterding. Cadet Logan Williams will offer the invocation and the benediction.

Music will be provided by Girard 7th grader Orin Weiss, who recently placed with distinction in the World Online Piping & Drumming Championships Competition, Pittsburg High School senior Addy Campbell, who is an incoming freshman at PSU, and by Ashley Hodges, a junior trumpet major at PSU.

The keynote speaker will be Anthony “Tony” Perez, a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force. He spent 22 years in service during the Vietnam War era on numerous bases across the U.S. and two tours in Thailand, then 19 years at the Kansas Army Ammunition Plant in Parsons, Kansas.
