The Military Star Tribute was a Community Action Project designed and created by the Walter Panas High School 2003-04 Leadership Class under the direction of teacher Jean Lazzaro-Barrett.
The star displays the names of Walter Panas graduates who served or are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces. At the time of its dedication on May 31, 2004, 32 names were included on the star. Over the past 10 years, the number has grown to over 80 names. Walter Panas Art teacher, Heidi Gannon keeps the star updated.
