Students pose with their new flags inside Bowie Elementary School.
In observance of Texas Public Schools Week members of the San Marcos Masonic Lodge No. 342 presented four Texas flags that had flown over the state capitol to San Marcos CISD elementary schools.
Student delegates from Bowie, Crockett, De Zavala and Travis Elementary Schools were on hand at Bowie to accept the flags and certificates. Bennie Hudson, Master of the Lodge, and Dr. Robert Northcutt made the presentation while a choir of Bowie students sang for the ceremony. San Marcos CISD Superintendent Dr. Patty Shafer and school board members Kathy Hansen and Dr. Judy Allen also were on hand.
Texas Public School Week was organized in 1950 by the Masonic Lodges of Texas to recognize contributions made by the state’s free education system.
