Members of the Bosco Tech family assembled on the school steps on Nov. 13 to dedicate the campus’ newly refurbished flagpole in honor of all Tech veterans.
“We gather this morning to dedicate the flagpole, our school’s flagstaff which proudly displays our nation’s banner and serves as a physical testament to the bloodshed that has wrought the freedoms we experience,” Tech Principal Xavier Jimenez told the group. “Moreover, this flag pole will here on in serve as a monument to the many students of Bosco Tech who came to us as boys and graduated as men and who bravely and selflessly served our country when called and for some, paid the ultimate price. To our alumni veterans of the armed services, this flagpole honors you, your service and devotion. You are always in our thoughts, in our hearts, and in our prayers today and throughout all of our free tomorrows.”
A new copper plaque at the flagpole’s base reads: Dedicated to Bosco Tech veterans who sustain, support, defend and proudly serve this nation. A.D. November 13, 2017.
