Flag Drop Box
HALO partnered with Akron community members to create a drop box for the retirement of worn American flags. The box is the only flag drop box located at a school in the state of Ohio. Students at Resnik CLC voted on the wrap for the box made from steel by metalsmithing students at the career center.
The project and dedication ceremony was a wonderful community effort, made possible through the contributions of Akron Public Schools, Sgt. Todd Fitzwater, MGSgt. John MacLean and Cadets: East High School CLC Marine Corps JROTC, Boy Scouts of America Troop 1, Cub Scouts Pack 3001, Orval Hawkins and students from the East HIgh School CLC welding program, APS Career Education, Flags of Freedom/ Steve Toohey, Power Media, the Alcoa foundation and Resnik Community Learning Center students and staff.
