Navy retiree to lead Vets Day program

Canton Repository

Minerva students will learn about the importance of honoring veterans in a presentation at 9 a.m. Friday featuring Crossroads Hospice Chaplain James Scalf, a Master Chief of the US Navy (retired).

He’ll recognize veteran staff members at Minerva Area Christian School for their service to the country in a pinning ceremony, presenting each veteran with a certificate honoring their service.

Scalf, a Canton resident with three decades of naval service, will present the school with a new American flag, and teach the students how to properly fold and display it. Scalf was drawn to hospice volunteering after losing his first wife to cancer. Committed to honoring veterans and providing “vet-to-vet” support, he became certified as a chaplain.

With Crossroads Hospice, he’s championed a Veterans Recognition Program honoring veterans with pinning ceremonies throughout Stark, Tuscarawas, and Summit County.

Minerva Christian School is at 300 W. Lincoln Way.
