“Clubs raise money for things all the time. They raise money for themselves to go on field trips or Disneyland, but these kids dedicated $3,500 to a person they don’t even know,” Hood said. “These kids are bigger than themselves.” The monument will honor Lancaster graduates besides Leon, people who die while in the line of duty in public service, such as law enforcement officers and firefighters, Hood said. “It’s funny. Christopher Leon did graduate from our school but was not in our program. These kids are very patriotic and committed to people,” Hood said. “They understood that somebody from our high school gave their life so they could continue to go to high school.” [email protected] (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! “It’s a great honor to see high school students in the corps take the extra step to honor fallen comrades who have attended the school,” Johnson said. The 4 1/2-by-3-foot rock slab was installed Tuesday in front of the school’s flag pole. A public unveiling and dedication ceremony is tentatively scheduled for 9 a.m. April 24, and Leon’s family is expected to attend. Leon, a 20-year-old Marine corporal, died June 20, 2006, of wounds suffered during combat in Iraq’s western al-Anbar province. He is among six servicemen who grew up in the Antelope Valley to die in Iraq. The Lancaster Junior ROTC program has 263 cadets, the largest in California, ROTC instructor Senior Master Sgt. David Hood said. The students raised the money over a two-week period by selling cookie dough. LANCASTER – Lancaster High School Air Force Junior ROTC cadets raised $3,500 to install a 950-pound black granite monument to honor a former student who died of wounds suffered during combat in Iraq. The monument will honor the memory of Christopher Leon, a 2004 graduate, and other alumni who give their lives in the service of others. “I think it’s an incredible honor to be able to put up the monument,” said Cadet Miranda Fitch, a senior. “It’s paying tribute to all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives so our nation is free, especially for kids who go into the military from our school.” For Cadet Nicholas Johnson, 17, who has enlisted in the Marines and will leave June 4 for basic training, the monument holds a special meaning.
