A Southeast Texas high school is rallying around the Confederate flag after the symbol has sparked controversy across the country.
The Confederate flag is posted on the fence of the football field, covers a gym wall and is displayed front and center outside a high school in the Evadale school district, KFDM-TV reports. Jamie Richardson, the valedictorian of the Class of 2015, said the emblem has always been a kind of a pride for her school.
"If you look at our emblem it's not just the confederate flag, it shows symbols of everything that we represent academically and also outside of school with extracurricular activities and such," Richardson said.
