School Board considers renaming Stonewall Jackson Middle School

Forming a committee to consider requests for name change

ROANOKE, Va. – The only school named after a Confederate general in Roanoke could soon have a new name.

School Board Chairwoman Annette Lewis tells WSLS 10 they're forming a committee to consider changing the name of Stonewall Jackson Middle School.

This comes after four requests for the change.

Lewis says it's too early to discuss the outcome of the review.

The board will have time to weigh in once the committee is complete.
