What to name the new high school? Weigh in before August.

A committee was comprised of county residents, staff, and students to review the submitted suggestions. The committee came before the board on June 28, 2010 and presented their unanimous top three suggestions in no particular order.

  • Zekiah
  • St. Charles
  • Lagrange Point

Other suggestions submitted to the committee are listed below...

  • Awossi
  • Free State
  • Freedom
  • Greenway
  • High Tech
  • Orion
  • Perihelion
  • Piney Branch
  • Piney Forest
  • Piney
  • Piney Tech
  • The Stem

The Board unanimously decided that the new high school should be named after a location not a person and therefore the following submissions would be mute.

  • Kris Romeo Bishundat
  • Jane Bowie
  • Cox/Williams
  • Dr. John H. Cox
  • Vicki A. Daniels
  • George Calvert
  • Robert A Heier
  • Roy S. Johnson
  • Walter Melvin "Johnny" Johnson
  • Peter Welford Kendrick
  • Lord Calvert
  • Willie McCool
  • Eleanor G. Robey
  • Clarence T. Rodgers
  • Robert D. Stetham
  • Vietnam Veterans Suggestions (8 names submitted)

Two suggestions were submitted to the committee but were disqualified because they did not follow board policy stating that if a school is to be named after a person, the person must be deceased for five or more years.

  • James E. Richmond
  • Cecil Marshall

The Board will be voting on the name at the August Board Meeting. Please respond with your vote.
