High School Honors America With Flag Display



Bookmark and Share

Luverne High School's colors weren't the only red and white on the field in their football game against the Pipestone Arrows Saturday afternoon.

Thirty American flags and one from every state decorated the entire field where the Cardinals play.

Sponsored by Papik Motors and the Luverne student body, the Flags Across America display was to honor the United States military, veterans and the country.

Gary Papik of Papik motors said the event was important for him to put on.

“We wanted to do something to show our support as far as an organization and the whole community for all the veterans and the things that they've accomplished,” said Papik.

Luverne High School students also had the opportunity to be a part of the celebration. They were asked to display a 30 foot by 50 foot American flag on the field before the game.

High School senior, Mannuel Olson said he was honored to be able to show his respect during the ceremony.

“It just shows the older veterans that kids still care about our freedom and what they gave us,” said Olson.

As the National Anthem played, students proudly waved the American flag on the field for all to see. While the game continued on and the flag was carefully put away, Olson reflected on this special moment in his senior year.

"I feel like an honor to be asked to do this and I wouldn't have had it any other way,” said Olson.

The community helped to put together the display of flags which were donated by Maximum Promotions.
