High Country Republican Women gifted 33 classroom flags and two ceremonial 7-foot U.S. flags to Shining Rock Classical Academy at the grand opening of its new school building Saturday, August 7, 2021.
The gift allows all students to be able to say the Pledge of Allegiance. They were unable to do so before this gift, as there were no flags in all the classrooms.
High Country Republican Women President, Paula Eachus, congratulated Joshua Morgan, the head of school, and the board of directors, teachers, parents, and students on Shining Rock's accomplishment of getting the structure completed in time for the new school year during the pandemic.
Eachus remarked how the school and the United States were both established through a common vision, personal perseverance and the freedom to pursue the better life.
The cost of the flags, the poles and the mounting hardware and the two 7-foot freestanding ceremonial flags were raised by the members and friends of the High Country Republican Women, and did not involve any public monies.
