School Board Member Ask Students To Stop Using Confederate Flag

The debate over using the confederate flag has come up for one area school.

Floyd County School Board Member Mickey McGuire is asking Allen Central High School students to quit using a confederate flag at football and basketball games. He says he thinks it could be disrespectful to some in the communities.

Several Allen Central students are supporting the flag saying they don't use it to reflect race, but rather history.
