The memorial will honor the town’s 61 natives killed in action from the Civil War to the war in Afghanistan, organizer Paul Ward said.
The project, in the works for four years, was funded by the football program and other donations.
A liaison of U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur will be present at the 8:05 p.m. ceremony, and district superintendent Dennis Muratori will address the crowd.
Much of the half-hour ceremony will be led by students.
An honor guard also will be present.
