Boston Celebrates Juneteenth 2021 With A Little Help from English High

The English High School Association was proud to be invited by Boston Mayor Kim Janey to attend the city’s Juneteenth Flag-Raising Ceremony on Friday, June 18th.

English High was front and center at the event as the EHS Drumline performed and the flag was actually raised by an English student.

English High’s Drumline made some glorious noise to celebrate the day.
