Girls on the Run & Flag Raising Ceremony

Taft Flag Raising Ceremony
View all images of this event

Taft's "Girl's on the Run" team completed a community project led by Mrs. Toni Griffith and Mrs. Laura Kinney.  Taft's young ladies raised enough money to replace a much needed American flag.  Not only did they raise the money and purchase the flag, the young ladies secured retired Marine Corps Veteran Mr. Bob Campbell, from Harris/Kehrer VFW Post 3323, to conduct a retiring of the old flag and the raising of the new flag. The "Girl's on the Run" team took the remainder of the funds that was raised and donated it to the Military Veterans.  Mrs. Griffith and Mrs. Kinney did a wonderful job and exuded outstanding leadership and our young ladies are absolutely amazing.  Taft Elementary is so proud of them!
