SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (March 6, 2012) - A part of Washington, D.C. is now at the Howard S. Gray School. On March 5, the Mental Health Guild presented the Howard Gray School with an American flag, obtained from U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona.
Ruth Kassner, president of the Mental Health Guild who requested the flag from Sen. Kyl, said, "We love this very special school, the students, all the teachers and principal Shari Carlsted. The students are very fortunate to be able to attend Howard S. Gray School."
The handmade flag flew over the U.S. Capitol on June 21, 2011 and was accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
Barbara Cook from the Cactus Wren Republican Women's Club and The American Daughters of the Revolution presented the flag to Jason Kuntz, the history, social studies and government teacher at Howard Gray, who accepted the flag for the school.
