Fallen Police Officers Memorialized at Dedication of Westerville South Victory Bell
On Thursday evening, October 18, Westerville South High School unveiled and dedicated a Victory Bell Memorial in memory of Westerville police officers Eric Joering and Anthony Morelli. As School Board members, administrators, city officials, fellow officers and fans looked on; their families rang the bell for the first time. The ceremony took place in the Westerville stadium just prior to the Westerville South vs. Westerville Central football game. The Westerville South Victory Bell will serve as a permanent memorial for the officers and will allow athletic teams to celebrate and remember.
