The Lee County School District has formed a committee whose purpose will be to help guide them through the naming process for the new high school being built along Griffin Drive in Gateway.

Not a moment too soon, as I’m sure we’re all tired of referring to the school as “MMM”.

We don’t have a lot of information about the committee, but we believe they’ll be meeting on the morning of October 4. The meeting did not appear on the district’s official calendar at the time this story was posted.

We are trying to find out who will be on the committee (although if we find out, we won’t publish it but you can email us and we’ll provide the list if you’re interested) and whether or not the meeting will be open to the public.

Additionally, we’d like to find out if the committee’s purpose is to whittle down the name options to 10, 3 or down to 1.

If we understand the process correctly, the district staff (with the help of this committee) will settle on a name for the school and then Superintendent Greg Adkins will formally recommend the name to the seven member elected LCSD school board.

The board will then vote on the name, giving it a thumbs up or thumbs down.

We believe the recommendation and vote will take place at the November 5 school board meeting.

This story will be updated when we obtain answers to the questions above.
