On Monday night board officials banned together to vote . The school consists of a 95% African American student body, the board wanted to name the school within honor to a civil rights leader of some sort. The list consisted of hero’s and heroines such as #JackieRobinson , #BarbaraJohns , #HenryMarsh , and #OliverHills states #PeopleMagazine .

With an 8-1 vote; Our forever President won by a landslide, indefinitely.

The new name has sparked a bit of controversy within the community as well as board members. Implications and suggestion have been forwarded; upon the basis of picking a name that is possibly more “ local “

The estimated cost for the name swap ranges between $25000-$26000 ; so far roughly 75% of the cost has already been donated.

This is epic! #Virginia is one of the few remaining states to still have a confederate flag swinging in all its falsified glory. It’s exciting to know what was once honored with hate will now be recognized with humility!
