Five Wapakoneta City Schools students participated in the Fraternal Order of Eagles “God, Flag, and Country” speech contest this past Sunday at the Eagles Lodge in Wapakoneta.
In an informational packet sent to local schools, Herb Limbert, chairman of the God, Flag and Country committee, said “the purpose of this program is to instill in our young people a deeper understanding of the place of God, Flag and Country in our common lives, to make them more aware of their heritage and to make it more meaningful to them in the world today.”
Of the five students, four of them are from Wapakoneta Middle School and one is from Wapakoneta High School.
