Rio Grande — Flag etiquette was one of many topics at the most recent meeting of the Buckeye Hills Chapter of SkillsUSA held March 22.
Each month the BHCC local officers conduct meetings to promote the SkillsUSA framework which illustrates how students fulfill the mission of the organization “to empower members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens.”
One aspect of being part of a community is the spirit of citizenship and patriotism. With the help of the Public Safety students and the American Spirit Team (a leadership program) the Buckeye Hills Chapter informed students of Flag Etiquette.
Each month students are informed, through presentations and demonstrations, on topics such as “When to fly an American flag at half-mast” or “What do the commands in a flag ceremony mean?” The team has learned a lot from the experience and hopes to do well in their upcoming competition at the SkillsUSA Ohio Championships on April 11.
