American Legion Post 10 Donates Flags to New Hanover County
The American Legion Post 10 will donate over fifty American
flags to New Hanover County Schools for classrooms, libraries
and media centers, at the New Hanover County Board of Education
Regular meeting on Tuesday, September 18, 2012.
Last winter, Board of Education Chairman Don Hayes requested
district schools to survey their building to ensure that all
classrooms had an American flag. The response came from all 42
schools, including requests from media teachers and librarians.
“It seems entirely appropriate for this donation to come on the
heels of another 9/11 anniversary. It is important for our
students, educators, and community to recognize how grateful we
are to live in a free country that provides a quality education
and great care for our youth,” said Chairman Hayes. Flag
Chairman Harold Davis and Commander David Hartley from the
American Legion Post 10 will present the flags which will help
fulfill the needs of NHCS.
