HHS senior presents

new flag pole to Jenkins

Will Tanner, a 2016 graduate of Hickory High School, recently visited students at Jenkins Elementary School to teach them respect of the United States Flag.

While visiting Jenkins, Tanner presented the school with a new flag pole, a new flag and an engraved monument as part of his Eagle Scout project.

Tanner instructed the school’s flag teams how to raise the flag on the new flag pole and the correct methods of folding the flag as well as proper care of the flag.

Tanner has been accepted to Virginia Military Institute and during the HHS Senior Awards Night, he was presented with the ROTC scholarship.

Thank you, Will Tanner, for your gift to the Jenkins students and staff!
