A flag demonstration is getting attention at a Mercer County school

Local News

There are two sides to a flag demonstration that took place Thursday at Lakeview High School in Mercer County.

Students put American flags on their cars before school. One student claims he was told to remove a Confederate and an American flag from his vehicle on Monday.

The demonstration Thursday was arranged to show support for the country.

District Superintendent Dr. Hendley Hoge said the student was asked to remove a Confederate flag because it could be viewed as racially insensitive. Hoge said the student willingly took it down.
