DAR Present Flag to Union County Early College

Union County Early College was honored to receive a flag from the John Foster Chapter of the Daugthers of the American Revolution today. The flag was flown over the U.S. Capitol at the request of Congressman Robin Hayes specifically for the John Foster Chapter of the DAR on August 26, 2008. DAR Chapter Regent, Barbara Moore, presented UCEC’s principal, Jane Wade, the flag for the school. 

“It is quite a tribute for the Early College to be awarded this flag. It is especially significant knowing that it has flown over the United States Capitol. We will take very good care of it. We would like to thank Mrs. Moore and the John Foster Chapter of the DAR,” said Ms. Wade.
The John Forster Chapter of the DAR was named to honor Captain John Foster, who served in the Revolutionary War and resided on Waxhaw creek (the area which became Union County in 1842). Foster was born in Ireland and came to present Union County in 1765. He died January 22, 1821 at the age of 72.
