COLUMBUS (WKBN) – Twelve veterans are being inducted into the Ohio Veteran’s Hall of Fame Monday, including a familiar name around Trumbull County.
Former Youngstown-Warren Regional Chamber President Thomas Humphries is one of the veterans being honored in the state’s capital.
Humphries spoke to First News Senior Reporter Gerry Ricciutti last month after he learned he’d been nominated by old coworkers at the chamber.
Humphries served in the United States Air Force and later was instrumental in establishing Eastern Gateway Community College, by lobbying and raising funds for the school. The Thomas Humphries Hall on campus memorializes his contribution.
Gov. Mike DeWine will be in attendance at the ceremony to provide comments.
It’s happening at 2 p.m. at the National Veterans Memorial and Museum on West Broad Street.
