March 7, 2018

The Austintown Local Schools announced that Austintown Fitch High School has earned a Purple Star Award from the Ohio Department of Education. The Purple Star Award for military-friendly schools recognizes schools that show a major commitment to students and families connected to the nation's military. Fitch High School was recognized for the numerous activities that honor military families and local veterans.

In August, a committee of dedicated individuals were assembled with the main focus being to create a more nurturing environment for military connected families throughout the district.

The committee, now named the Purple Star Committee, is working on a special project at Fitch High School that will serve as the main "hub" for all military related activities.

Fitch's application is also listed on the ODE website as an "Exemplary Application" to use as a point of reference for others wishing to earn a Purple Star designation.
