Stephanie Graves of Coosa Valley Credit Union presents a new flag at Saint Mary’s Catholic School which in turn was raised by alums Henry Thornton and brothers Philip and Nicholas Johnson, members of Troop 113. They’re joined by Jenny Rittgers, the school’s new principal. It was part of Coosa Valley Credit Union’s annual tradition of offering free replacement flags in June through Independence Day. The school’s old flag, “a gift from SMS granddad Jim Hudson, had been flown over the U.S. Capitol in recognition of the anniversary of the founding of Saint Mary’s School but had become tattered and worn with age, and so was lowered and retired. A special way to celebrate an early Independence Day,” according to a Saint Mary’s Facebook post.
