Interim Ole Miss chancellor ordered flag lowered

Interim Chancellor Morris Stocks ordered the flag lowered and said it was being sent to the university’s archives.

“As Mississippi’s flagship university, we have a deep love and respect for our state,” Stocks said in a statement Monday. “Because the flag remains Mississippi’s official banner, this was a hard decision. I understand the flag represents tradition and honor to some. But to others, the flag means that some members of the Ole Miss family are not welcomed or valued.”
