Spring ISD will unveil and dedicate its new Spring ISD Memorial during a special ceremony Dec. 4 at 10 a.m., the district announced in a Nov. 11 press release.

The memorial, which is on-site at the district’s new Planet Ford Stadium located at 23802 Cypresswood Drive, Spring, is funded through the district’s $330 million bond approved by voters in 2016. The project is designed to be a space for the Spring community to honor and remember veterans.

According to the press release, the memorial features a circular monolith design with bench seating and features flags representing the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine, as well as a flag paying tribute to those who have gone missing in action or were prisoners of war.

“This will be a very special ceremony,” SISD Superintendent Rodney Watson said in a statement. “As a school district, we’re honored to be able to remember our service members with this memorial, which will be a place of tribute to these brave men and women.”

According to the press release, the event will include a live performance of taps and participation from the district's Junior ROTC program. The event is open to all community members, including veterans.


“We’re very proud to be able to have a memorial like this within our Spring community,” said Navy Capt. James Boyer, who is the director of Spring High School's Junior ROTC, in a statement. “We are looking forward to unveiling the monument during a ceremony that will highlight the contributions of all of our service members. The event is student-driven and will include readings and the raising of all the flags that will have a permanent home there.”
