It might be difficult to build school pride if your campus is called “Central Region High School #13.” Fortunately, that is only the temporary name given to the new high school that will open its doors later this year in Glassell Park. A new permanent name has yet to be selected but the office of board member Yolie Flores is seeking suggestions through an informal naming survey. The survey, which is due tomorrow Friday, Feb. 18, contains four options that were suggested by residents:
- Sonia Sotomayor (Supreme Court Justice)
- Corky Perez (Civil rights activist)
- Rio de Los Ángeles (Los Angeles River)
- Tongva (Native American tribe)
Those who take the survey are instructed to select up to two of the options. But residents can also write in with their own suggestions for the name of the new San Fernando Road campus. Any votes for Patras’ Burger High?
