AISD celebrates facility’s new name

Thursday, August 29, 2019 by Tai Moses

You’ve heard of gender-reveal parties: Austin Independent School District is pioneering the sign-reveal party. The brand-new sign will be revealed to the world at a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the renaming of the Anita Ferrales Coy Facility, which is home to AISD’s Alternative Learning Center, Library Media Services and other nonprofit groups. The new name honors Anita Ferrales Coy, a longtime AISD superintendent who was formerly principal of Allan Elementary School. Speakers at the event include members of the Ferrales/Coy family, Superintendent Paul Cruz, AISD Trustee Jayme Mathias, Assistant Director of Library Media Services Elizabeth Polk and Director of Alternative Education Chris Jones. Light refreshments will be served after the ceremony. Friday, Aug. 30, 9 a.m., Anita Ferrales Coy Facility Gymnasium, 4900 Gonzales St.
