Spring Valley High School is now the home of a Purple Heart plaque, given posthumously to an Army Air Corps Staff Sergeant from the area. Stanley Boorman graduated Spring Valley High School in 1940. He was killed when he was shot down during a mission in Japan during World War II at the age of 24. Purple Heart recipient, Howard Golden, the local commander of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, presented the school district with the plaque in a ceremony yesterday, and it is now encased in the main hallway of the high school.
