Logan, UT ~ Field of Honor® 2015

June 28 – July 5, 2015


The faculty, administration and students of Bridgerland Applied Technology College united to provide a spectacular send off for retiring president Richard Maughan, who has stepped down after serving the school for 40 years.  Determined to make the retirement ceremony a fitting tribute for a leader who has transformed Bridgerland, they posted 1,200 U.S. flags on the grassy lawns in front of the school which were displayed in ordered rows and columns.  Flags were especially appropriate to recognize Richard Maughan’s service not only to the school but also with the Utah National Guard and the U.S. Naval Reserve.  He received the Bronze Star while deployed during Deseret Storm in the Gulf War and retired as a U.S. Army Colonel. Area residents from Logan and surrounding communities were deeply impressed by the beautiful panorama created by the posted flags, which remained on display through the Fourth of July weekend.

A one hundred-twenty foot flagpole is yet to be installed upon which a huge U.S. flag measuring 30 by 60 feet will fly as a continuing honor to Dr. Maughan.
