Alex Potter, son of Ben Potter, and Allie Sermersheim, daughter of Justin and Jenna Sermersheim, both students from Ireland Elementary School, were the top girl and boy winners of the fourth grade in The American Legion Flag Education Testing Program.

Both students received a Post Award Certificate and an American Legion Americanism Medallion during their School Awards Day on Dec. 12 by Children and Youth Chairman Daniel Lawson.   

The major objective of the flag testing program is to build patriotism in the youth and to develop a thorough understanding of proper flag display and courtesy.
