AMERICAN LEGION POST DONATES FLAGS FOR GHS CLASSROOMS
March 1, 2016
Granbury High School classrooms in the
new Crossland Academic Wing have new United States flags thanks to a donation
from American Legion Post 491.
Post commander Julie Rhoden and past
commander Jack Sides presented the flags on March 1, 2016, to social studies
teacher Cindy Leatherman and seniors in a dual credit U.S. government class.
Following the presentation, Rhoden and
Sides joined the students in reciting the pledge of allegiance to the American
flag in the classroom. All schools in
Granbury ISD and across the state recite the pledges to both the U.S. and Texas
flags each morning.
Lt. Col. Scott Casey, the Senior Marine
Instructor for the Granbury Marine Corps JROTC, facilitated the American Legion
The Crossland addition to the high
school was completed in August 2015 and has a variety of classes while
construction continues at the campus. Beginning in the 2016-17 school year, the wing will have ninth grade academic
classrooms in the fully complete high school for grades 9-12.
