Tuscola JROTC Installs New Flagpoles at School
June 7, 2017
Over the last year, Tuscola High School has been working to install new flagpoles at the memorial garden in front of D Building. The existing flagpole by A Building was in need of repairs and predates the awnings, where it’s surrounded by trees and makes viewing the flag difficult.
Tuscola Air Force JROTC instructor, Senior Master Sgt. Steve Robertson, worked with community members who donated materials. The project began with discussions from members of the Western North Carolina Military Officers Association of America (MOAA)’s local chapter.
Not long after initial talks, MOAA found the primary donor in Virginia — Randy Dominick, owner of Traffic Systems and Technology, became very interested in the project and not only donated three aluminum poles, but also paid for shipping.
Dominick is a former U.S. Marine whose only request was to receive a photograph of the Tuscola JROTC near the completed project.
