We live in a state that is widely known for its contributions to military service. Many West Virginians are veterans who serve in National Guard, Reserve, or active components of the Unites States armed forces and have families with children attending school. During times when these families relocate to meet duty requirements or experience the absence of a loved one while on deployment, schools have an opportunity to meet the unique needs of these children. The Purple Star Award is designed to recognize schools that create a military-friendly environment and make a special commitment to supporting the resilience of military connected children.
