The tears of joy in Mary Southern’s eyes told the story.
North Augusta High School dedicated the new Dorothy K. Flanagan Science and Business Wing on June 18, and Southern, Flanagan’s daughter, knew her late mother would have been proud of the building that now bears her name.
“It has not sunk in,” Southern said after the dedication. “It’s unbelievable.”
Stephanie Ryan, Flanagan’s granddaughter, said she was amazed at the extent of her grandmother’s influence in the community.
