Santa Ana High School held a “re-dedication ceremony” Friday to mark the replacement of a collection of bronze plaques that were stolen from the school’s entrance more than a year ago, officials said.

The plaques commemorate the school’s veterans and their service in various wars, along with the school’s dedication and centennial, according to a news release.

The replacements were paid for through fund-raising efforts by alumni, veterans groups and private donors.

“We are thrilled to be able to restore such an important part of the school’s history,” said Principal Julie Infante.
