Cobb Schools to Lower Flags to Half-Staff in Honor of Crossing Guard Edna Umeh

In honor of the service of crossing guard Edna Umeh, who gave her life while helping students walk safely to Lindley Middle School, the Cobb County School District (CCSD) will lower the Georgia flag to half-staff on Friday, December 8 until sunset on Saturday, December 9 in accordance with the executive order signed by Gov. Nathan Deal.

“We appreciate the Governor issuing the Executive Order in memory of Ms. Umeh,” said CCSD Superintendent Chris Ragsdale. “It is a touching and fitting tribute to our dedicated employee who was a loving sister, mother and grandmother.”
