MEDINA – The VFW Auxiliary in Medina’s historian and vice president Dave Berry visited the Iroquois Job Corps on Monday to present the center with an award for its support of veterans.

The National Office of the Veterans of Foreign War Auxiliary’s annual Service Award was given to the Job Corps in recognition of students who volunteered to assist the Medina VFW Auxiliary serving lunch to veterans on Veterans Day. The students also made Veterans Day cards and handed them out to all the veterans, according to John Thomas, operations director at Iroquois Job Corps.

Also participating in the award ceremony were the three students who assisted with the Veterans Day lunch, Melody Goodwin, Kee’Andra Creque and Joshua Espnal.
