Local coach spearheads Tribute Hall project to honor Coos Bay School District veterans

COOS BAY, Ore. -- A local track coach's push to honor veterans will soon become a reality.

Marshfield's Mac McIntosh is behind the Tribute Hall project, which will honor local veterans.

During Senator Ron Wyden's visit to Coos Bay last weekend, he presented school officials with a flag that had been flown over the nation’s capital, showing his support for the creation of Tribute Hall.

"To create a hall that will honor veterans affiliated with the Coos Bay School District highlighting their service, but then even more, highlighting their contribution to the community after their service," said McIntosh/

Marshfield's Tribute Hall is scheduled to break ground in late spring.
