New Fiesta medal features Confederate flag and soldier

A group of Lee High School graduates have created a Fiesta medal to be sold for next year's event featuring a Confederate Flag and Confederate soldier.

The medal, called "mad rebel" was posted to Facebook by a self-identified Lee alumnus and picked up by the Fiesta Medal Hounds Facebook page.

The post on the Fiesta Medal Hounds page reads: "Because one cannot change history by simply pulling a statue down or changing the name of a school! Our history is what it is! BUT WE CAN CHANGE THE FUTURE!"

NEISD recently voted to change the name of Lee High School. And a Confederate statue was recently removed from Travis Park.
