Four years ago, two Shelby High School alumni met to catch up - and ended up forming an idea to pay tribute to every SHS graduate who ever served in the U.S. Military. These two alumni, Mike Johnson and Gary Seals, ended up getting a memorial displayed in Shelby High School's hallway for everyone to see, listing over 1,360 names - and there's more names to be added to it.

"We felt that public recognition of all of our veterans throughout the years was overdue," Johnson said. "Gary and I invested countless hours collecting the names, the graduation years, and the branches of service for this."

Johnson also cites Shelby High School principal John Gies as a key contributor to the project. The memorial measures fourteen feet long and eight feet high, big enough to incorporate more names later on.
