… and then there were 147.
The Mississippi State flag commission has narrowed down their choices to 147 after almost 3,000 submissions were sent in.
The commission includes Reuben Anderson, Cyrus Ben, Sherri Carr Bevis, Frank Bordeaux, Betsey Hamilton, T.J. Taylor, J. Mack Varner, Mary Graham, and Robyn Tannehill.
Members of the commission will rank their top ten choices and at their next meeting on August 14th, will select the top five for “final consideration.”
Those five will then be placed on the Mississippi Department of Archives and History website for the public to view.
