Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School

Citizenship and Patriotism at B-UMS

On Friday, Dec. 19, Mrs. Mary Albaugh visited Mrs. McVaney's Citizenship and Patriotism Club. Ms. Albaugh is the adjutant of the American Legion post in Buckhannon, and works to present programs for students on Citizenship and Patriotism. She spoke to the club at length about the importance of being a good citizen in the community, and why patriotism is SO important. She presented the club with its very own banner, that will be unfurled every club time. She also challenged the students to read from Dr. Michael George's book about various American Patriots, and write Dr. George a summary. We thank Mrs. Albaugh for all that she does for the community.
