It’s hard to believe
the current American flag was designed by a 17-year-old boy who completed
the task in one weekend.
Robert G. Heft, a retired school teacher, had initiative and creativity
as a high school junior. He will share his continued spunk for learning
at the Auglaize County Republican Women’s annual fall rally Thursday
at the Veterans of Foreign Wars hall in Wapakoneta.
“It all began as a simple American history project,” said
Heft, 62, in a telephone interview from his home in Saginaw, Mich.
