Help name new Chatham middle school

Chatham County Schools is soliciting input for help naming its new middle school in the northeast corner of the county. Ideas will be accepted until Oct. 1.

The following criteria should be used for suggestions:

  • The name may be that of an educational or community leader of prominence; priority will be given to the names of educational or community leaders who have directly or indirectly helped students in this school attendance zone to succeed;
  • The name may specify the geographic locality or description of the school.
  • The school, which the district plans to open in the fall of 2010, will be located off Andrews Store Road in northeastern Chatham County.

Applications can be sent to one of these three places:

  • Chatham County Schools, P.O. Box 128, Pittsboro, NC  27312, c/o Beth McCullough, Public Information Officer
  • North Chatham School, 3380 Lystra Church Rd., Chapel Hill, NC  27527, c/o Wendy Phillips
  • Perry Harrison School, 2655 Hamlet Chapel Rd., Pittsboro, NC  27312, c/o Kim Harris
