Masons give US flags to six SMCISD schools


Members of the San Marcos Masonic Lodge No. 342 met student delegates from six San Marcos CISD elementary schools to offer federal flags that had flown over the U.S. Capitol building.

Students from Bowie, Crockett, De Zavala, Hernandez, Mendez, and Travis Elementary schools received the flags during a Nov. 8 ceremony at Travis Elementary, where Assistant Principal Brooke Neal served as master of ceremonies. The Travis 5th Grade Honors Choir, under the direction of substitute choir director Viki Hicks, sang two patriotic tunes in honor of Veterans Day.

“The members of the San Marcos Lodge are grateful that we can make a gift of these flags to you as a sign of our commitment to public education in Texas,” said Masonic Lodge member Dr. Robert Northcutt to the students.
