The Lee High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program held a Flag Day ceremony on Thursday, June 14 at 10 a.m. at Lee High School's grassy courtyard.

The ceremony consisted of the disposing of worn and torn U.S. Flags and Texas Flags, doing so with dignity. Flags were properly prepared (each stripe and star cut out) and were disposed of in accordance with U.S. and Texas Government Code. At the proper time, each piece of each flag was dropped, respectfully, into a fire pit.

Following the ceremony, birthday cake was served in the JROTC Armory to celebrate the United States Army birthday.
