FAIRBORN — The Fairborn Military Veterans Memorial Project committee is proud to announce that the winner of the Military Veterans Memorial logo contest is Robert Rogers.
Rogers was raised in the City of Fairborn, graduating from Fairborn City Schools in 2011 and from Wittenberg University in 2015. He is currently working at the Speedway Corporation in Enon. He said he loved art and credits his grandmother for his interest in arts.
“I wanted to give back to the community and especially the veterans who have given so much for their country,” Rogers said. “This seemed like the right thing to do.”
