Jefferson said the name change is a way to honor someone that "fully represents ideals and public stances consistent with what we want our children to believe about themselves.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The new name of the institution will go into effect for the 2018-19 school year. Before making the transition, the school’s partners must first raise funds to support the name change.
