Sydney Chandler and Brandon Lindsey are the Ben-Hem Standard Bearers. Sydney is this year’s Standard Bearer and Brandon is the Alternate Standard Bearer. The Standard Bearers have two jobs. They raise the flag every morning and lower it in the afternoon. They also recite the Pledge of Allegiance daily.
The Standard Bearers are important because they take care of the flag and lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance. It is also a privilege and honor because they get selected by their classmates and teachers.
