ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC)- Signs bearing the state and national flag alongside the motto “In God We Trust” will soon hang at every Abilene ISD and Wylie ISD campus, donated to the districts by the Abilene Freedom League.

Upon donation the signs are required to be displayed on these public campuses as a result of Texas Senate Bill 797.

“We were surprised to find that, so far, in the Abilene area, nobody has done that yet,” said Tyler Lineweaver with Abilene Freedom League (AFL).
