Brian Conley, computer graphics instructor and soccer coach, was looking for way to generate school spirit - and get his class pumped up about assignments.
Student Eric Carey just liked to create artwork on his computer.
Carey's design for a new Boyle County High School flag was chosen by his fellow students as the best overall in a contest held last year, and the end result of his work was presented to the school this week.
Gina Webb, a seamstress who has sewn numerous flags for display at the Perryville Battlefield, finished the first incarnation of what Conley hopes will be an ubiquitous symbol of school spirit.
"Our ultimate goal was to instill some school pride," said Conley. "We want to get a symbol we can wave at games, to rally behind. The athletic teams here have a strong tradition, and anything we can do to get the students behind the teams is good."
