Every year North Augusta High School's Service Learning class and the Future Business Leaders of America conducts a service project to benefit the community. This year, partnering with the Navy Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (NJROTC) and the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), North Augusta is honoring those men and women who served or are serving in the Armed Forces through Project HOMAGE. HOMAGE is an acronym that stands for Honoring Our Military with Appreciation and with Grateful Enactments.True to its name, this project involves several actions to benefit active military and veterans.

SPREADING AWARENESS
Members of FBLA and NJROTC are traveling to all of the elementary and middle schools in the community to teach about veterans and how individuals can show their appreciation. The project is also designed to unify the community in its support of veterans through building a monument and supporting the Fisher House in Augusta.
