Frank Ekstrom Visit

 

On 22nd November 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.  At the U.S. Naval Base in Londonderry, where our school now stands, Frank Ekstrom raised the American flag as a mark of respect after the assassination. 

Today Frank returned to raise the flag with the help of some of our Year 14 History students and members of the School Archive Team.  It was an honour to welcome Frank to Foyle College today and to hear his recollections of his time in Londonderry.
