Hanover School Board to Consider Feedback on School Names

The Hanover County School Board has decided to solicit input from the community on the issue of changing the names of two schools that honor Confederate leaders. Petitions were presented to the board last month asking them to change the names of Lee-Davis High School and Stonewall Jackson Middle School.

At last night’s meeting (1/9), the school board heard from other members of the community, about evenly split on the name changes.
