Colby Adams, Class of 2021, organized and led a flag retirement ceremony on the last day of school before members of the sophomore class. Colby, a member of Boy Scouts Troop 67 of Catawissa, assisted by fellow troop members, retired two United States flags that were flown over Southern Columbia schools, explaining each step of the process as it unfolded. "When the United States flag becomes worn, torn, faded or badly soiled, it should be retired with all the dignity and respect befitting our nation's flag," Colby explained.  Colby also used the ceremony to teach his classmates about the symbolic meaning of the flag and general flag etiquette. Great job Colby and thank you to you and Troop 67 for this exceptional lesson in pride and patriotism for our country!
