Schools raise new state flag
Mississippi Speaker of the House Philip Gunn was at Rosa Scott on Friday along with other dignitaries for a flag raising ceremony commemorating the new state flag.
“The flag-raising ceremonies across our District gave us all the chance to watch this historical event unfold in person,” Superintendent of Education Charlotte Seals said. “As our students grow up they will always remember taking part in this very significant moment for our state.”
At Ridgeland High School, Principal Keith Fennel called the new flag a “symbol of encouragement” and “a step towards healing, restoration and progress for many.”
Dignitaries included House Speaker Philip Gunn and Ridgeland Mayor Gene McGee.
