GCA Flags Retired on September 11, 2020

A select group of middle and upper school students assisted with the retirement of American flags that were flown at the GCA Lower/Early Middle/Middle School and Upper School on Friday, September 11, 2020.

Special Agent Ted Francisco led GCA Middle and Upper School students in the retiring of our U.S. Flags and replacing them with new ones on September 11, 2020. This ceremony was purposely done in remembrance of the attacks and lives lost on our country on 9/11/2001.  Mr. Francisco spoke to the students about the meaning of retiring the flag, the significance of the process and what the 13 folds each represent. 

The following students represented their classmates and took part in the memorable ceremony:

Middle School representatives: 7th Grade: Brendan Mehegan, Jacob Poling; 8th Grade: Logan Langley, Hunter Shewmake; Upper School:  10th Graders: Riley King, John Hicks, Talon Earlywine, and Mason Howard.

Thank you to those students who accomplished this important process on our campus and to Special Agent Ted Francisco for his leadership and education for our students on this incredible process.
