Blount County, Tennessee has a rich history. The land that is now Blount County was originally passed down through various native tribes, eventually reaching the Cherokee. Today, Blount County is home to Maryville College, one of the fifty oldest colleges in the United States.
A federal appeals court recently agreed with the Blount County Board of Education in a lawsuit brought against the board by three former Blount County High School students. The students brought their lawsuit in 2005 when the school banned the wearing of the Confederate flag on any clothing. The school banned the flag because of increased racial tension that included a fight, graffiti, and a noose. The court agreed that the Blount County Board of Education could reasonably forecast that students wearing the Confederate flag would disrupt the education of the school’s students.
