The following is from Harvey Zion, Grady class of 1965.
Time is short, so please respond quickly if you want to echo Harvey's thoughts or if you have other thoughts.
After viewing 2 zoom meetings of the Atlanta Board of Education Naming Committee I am convinced that Grady High School will have a name change. My choice is to have the school renamed for Roger Derthick. If you agree with me or have another suggestion please go to the link below and complete the form. Other people at the zoom meeting have suggested Ida B. Wells who has no connection to our high school. The next meeting is Tuesday Aug. 4th. If you have any questions or would like to see my submission please email me at email@example.com.
There is a link in the text on this webpage:
On the web page look under: Community Engagement
To suggest a name to the committee click where it says "Click here."
Think if you go to the webpage url above and click on the here link you can enter a name in google docs which is what they are using for their input. Verbal comments are nice, but the google docs form input is what they will count and use, based on the 7/7/20 online Zoom meeting. Also, they may only allow input during the online meeting times 5-7pm for meetings #2 and #3.
To enter comments you have to enter your email address as page 1. Before you get to page 2, to enter comments. Would be really good to have your comments typed on computer so you can copy and paste into their input form.
