LAWRENCEVILLE - Louise Radloff, Glenn C. Jones, M.H. Mason Jr. and W.C. Britt are among Gwinnett's community members who have had schools named after them.
Mountain Park, Centerville, Five Forks and Trickum are among the communities for which Gwinnett schools have been named.
With the opening of 12 schools in the next two years, Gwinnettians have the opportunity to submit suggestions for school names - perhaps a person who has made a significant social contribution or a nearby community, landmark or road.
Suggestions will be accepted through March 26. School naming input forms are available on the Gwinnett County Public Schools Web site, www.gwinnett.k12.ga.us, or at schools in clusters where new schools are opening, according to a news release from the school system.
School naming committees in the affected clusters have been formed to create a list of suggested school names. In making the lists, the committees will consider individuals who have made significant social contributions, names of communities served by the schools, roads, landmarks and geographical locations near the school.
The committees will submit the recommended names to Gwinnett Schools Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks, who will present his recommendations to the Gwinnett Board of Education. The Board is expected to vote on the school names during its April business meeting.
