Forest Park High School

Mr. Richard Martinez,


Dear Mr. Richard Martinez:

I am pleased to inform you that the Virginia Council on the Interstate Compact on the Educational Opportunity of Military Children has selected Forest Park High School  as a 2019 Purple Star designee.  The Council applauds and appreciates your school’s outstanding commitment to serving the needs of military students and families. Your dedicated program truly serves as an inspiring model for other schools across Virginia.

The award is valid for three school years, so the school will need to reapply in the spring of 2022. Please feel free to display your certificate and coin proudly. You may also utilize the Purple Star logo on your website or in any other location of your choosing.

Once again, congratulations for being a Purple Star recipient and for your continuous support of Virginia’s military students and families.


Mr. Daniel Dunham,
