The wall is now entirely white.

The decision was made by Kentucky Equality Federation President Jordan Palmer with Leslie County Board of Education Counsel Cheryl U. Lewis.

“I think everyone in the community will be pleased the entire wall is now covered as myself and attorney Mary Ann Miranda continue negotiating with counsel representing the Leslie County Board of Education,” stated Palmer. “We continue to work in good faith to avoid expensive litigation.”
