10 YEARS AGO
Students and members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans defended the wearing of t-shirts with the Confederate flag at a school board meeting after a student at Greensboro High School was sent home for wearing a shirt depicting that flag. SCV member Bill Beckman told the board that the group took great value in the history of the flag. “Kids feel like it is a heritage issue, not a hate issue. We want the board to take a stand and allow the Dixie Outfitters t-shirt,” he said. A special January workshop was set by the board to decide policy.
