Several Creston students are facing national media backlash after a photo of five males wearing white hoods while waving a confederate flag was posted on Twitter. Creston’s principal, Bill Messerole, told the associated press that the students involved “have been disciplined” but the specific discipline was not stated. Union County Sheriff Rick Piel told the AP, “As far as I know, it’s all being handled by the school. We’ve spoken to the county attorney, and we can’t come up with a charge.” News organizations such as the Washington Post and the Kansas City Star covered the story as well.

According to the Washington Post, Trey Cheers, a 2017 Creston graduate, posted the tweet that brought the photo into the public eye. Cheers said the photo was sent to him by a friend, who received it from the student who took it.
