Four AISD campuses debut new names

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 by Tai Moses

After much thought and deliberation, the Austin Independent School District has renamed four campuses that were previously named after people associated with the Confederacy. When school starts on Aug. 20, the four campuses will be identified by their new names. The John T. Allan Facility is now the Anita Ferrales Coy Facility, named after an educator and former principal. Zachary T. Fulmore Middle School is now Sarah B. Lively Middle School, named after a popular social studies teacher. Sidney Lanier Early College High School is now Juan Navarro Early College High School, in honor of a U.S. Army sergeant and former student who died in action in 2012. And John H. Reagan Early College High School is now Northeast Early College High School, in recognition of its deep ties to the community.
