Lordsburg Students recognized for Patriotism.
DTMS students recognized for dedication to patriotism. Alani Eugenio and Leila Gonzalez, students at Dugan-Tarango Middle School were recently recognized by the Lordsburg Elks Lodge’s Americanism program for their care and consideration of the American flag. Alani and Eugenio have been volunteering each day to raise, lower and properly fold the American flag. The girls even asked to be dismissed during class to bring in the flag during a rainstorm. The local Elks Lodge has kicked off an “Americanism Superstar” program in which local individuals, organizations and businesses will be recognized for their patriotic spirit while following proper flag etiquette. Pictured at left are Julie Montenegro, Lordsburg Elks President and Americanism Chair, Leila Gonzalez, Alani Eugenio and Principal Ralph Almanzar.
