     “Our mission is to bring to light and recognize the courage and commitment of high school graduates in Boone County Indiana who have decided to serve our country post graduation” says Matt Weinheimer, Board Chair of BCSS and US Navy veteran.

Weinheimer, started this organization along with Dr. Jim Haines, founder Zionsville Eyecare and also a US Navy veteran.
Dr. Haines adds, “These young adults have raised their hand and said, ‘I am prepared to give my life for the country’. “Students who later become accomplished in their careers, such doctors, lawyers and engineers are celebrated, yet military members who have stepped up to serve often are not ”.
