American Salute on Display

Concordia Junior and Senior High School dedicated a new gallery Tuesday paying homage to the Stars and Stripes – a reflection of patriotism.

It's called the Freedom Gallery and the Exchange Club of Omaha helped bring it into the school.

The gallery permanently displays 25 portraits of different scenes about the founding of the United States with the hope of piquing student interest in our nation's past.

Concordia Schools Executive Director Robert Cooksey said, “This is a chance for us to share something with all of our students and families and even with the entire community as they come into the building, just a reminder to all of us, the patriotism and all of the history that maybe we let go, the work of our founding fathers, the country and the privileges we have here in the United States.”

This is the second Freedom Gallery on display in Omaha. The Exchange Club helped bring one to Boys Town in 2007.
