The District 202 School Board has extended Superintendent Eric Witherspoon’s contract through June 30, 2022.

It’s June 14, Flag Day, a day to honor the U.S. flag and to commemorate its adoption by Congress on June 14, 1777.

According to history.com, “On this day in 1777, during the American Revolution, the Continental Congress adopts a resolution stating that ‘the flag of the United States be thirteen alternate stripes red and white’ and that ‘the Union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.’

“The national flag, which became known as the “stars and stripes,” was based on the “Grand Union” flag, a banner carried by the Continental Army in 1776 that also consisted of 13 red and white stripes. According to legend, Philadelphia seamstress Betsy Ross designed the new canton for the flag, which consisted of a circle of 13 stars and a blue background, at the request of General George Washington. Historians have been unable to conclusively prove or disprove this legend.”
