Naming a School…Honoring a Poet

Hello folks. Hope everyone had a good weekend, with lots and lots of graduations out there.

I got a comment late last week from Billy “the Blogging Poet.” I’ve added his site to my blogroll on the right-hand side of your screen.

He chimed in to say that he’s joining our friend Joe Stafford in the naming of the new Browns Summit/Summerfield (Northern) area elementary school after Mr. Randall Jarrell, a.k.a. the Bat Poet, who is a former U.S. poet laureate who lived in Greensboro. Read the related post on his website here.

Want to go speak in favor of the proposal? Tomorrow’ s school board meeting, 6pm, GCS Board Room. Hopefully, there won’t be a big “crap”-storm over this naming proposal, unlike the naming of the new Ronald McNair Elementary School at Reedy Fork.

E.C. 🙂
