Sponsoring 10 kids from Killeen and Nolanville in the national program, C.A.S.T.

Posted by reimund2@yahoo.com on March 5, 2023 at 1:00 PM

Harker Heights Kiwanis Club member David McClure is also a volunteer with the Clements Boys & Girls Club. They sponsored 10 kids from Killeen and Nolanville in the national program, C.A.S.T.

The pond is stocked with trout and the fish are cleaned on site and given to the participant to take home. The kids are also provided a rod & reel with a tackle box they get to keep. Some participants are special needs kids who would otherwise not get to be a participant in an activity like this. David would like for the City of Harker Heights and the Harker Height Kiwanis Club with the Boys & Girls Club to sponsor this event at Carl Levin Park in the future.

This was his first fish!!

On the other side of the kitchen are the pancake flippers and our high school students ready to work the serving line. All proceeds benefit local high school scholarships and children's programs in our community. We had about 100 door prizes donated by local businesses and individuals and 15 auction items, most were the artworks of local artist Joe Friddle. It was a very fun and successful evening.

HHHS Key Club Secretary National Merit Semifinalist

Posted by Vivian on September 16, 2021 at 7:05 PM

Harker Heights Student Named National Merit Semifinalist

Killeen ISD is proud to announce that Grace Koh of Harker Heights High School has qualified as a Semifinalist in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program. Of the approximately 1.5 million students who enter the National Merit Scholarship Program each year, only 16,000 high school seniors are named as semifinalists.

Koh entered the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking a 2020 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists makes up less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors.

Koh will have the opportunity to continue in the competition toward one of 7,500 National Merit Scholarships that will be announced in the spring of 2022. To become a Finalist, Koh will work with her counselor at Harker Heights High School to submit a detailed scholarship application, which will contain an endorsement by a campus official, an essay, and her academic record, to include participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received.

Merit Scholar winners are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies, without regard to gender, race, ethnic origin, or religious preference.

Grace is the Secretary of the Harker Heights HS Key Club.

         *Flags are not placed out in inclement weather. 



                              American Flag Etiquette

Federal law stipulates many aspects of flag etiquette. The section of law dealing with American Flag etiquette is generally referred to as the Flag Code. Some general guidelines from the Flag Code answer many of the most common questions:

The flag should be lighted at all times, either by sunlight or by an appropriate light source.

The flag should be flown in fair weather, unless the flag is designed for inclement weather use.

The flag should never be dipped to any person or thing. It is flown upside down only as a distress signal.

The flag should not be used for any decoration in general. Bunting of blue, white and red stripes is available for these purposes. The blue stripe of the bunting should be on the top.

The flag should never be used for any advertising purpose. It should not be embroidered, printed or otherwise impressed on such articles as cushions, handkerchiefs, napkins, boxes, or anything intended to be discarded after temporary use. Advertising signs should not be attached to the staff or halyard.

The flag should not be used as part of a costume or athletic uniform, except that a flag patch may be used on the uniform of military personnel, fireman, policeman and members of patriotic organizations.

The flag should never have any mark, insignia, letter, word, number, figure, or drawing of any kind placed on it, or attached to it.

The flag should never be used for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.

When the flag is lowered, no part of it should touch the ground or any other object; it should be received by waiting hands and arms. To store the flag it should be folded neatly and ceremoniously.

The flag should be cleaned and mended when necessary.

When a flag is so worn it is no longer fit to serve as a symbol of our country, it should be destroyed by burning in a dignified manner.
