Public asked what to name consolidated Ypsilanti-Willow Run district
The Ypsilanti-Willow Run school district merger was intended to wipe the slate clean, and starting over means a new name and mascot.
So, the unified district’s administration is asking the public for ideas.
After the districts’ winter breaks, on Jan. 7, suggestion boxes also will be set out at the main offices of each school building.
A posting on the unified district’s website, together4ss.org, encourages people to “be creative.”
“Explore our local history; milestones that have shaped our community can be incorporated into a name,” the post says. “Think about our future aspirations and craft a suggestion.”
Name ideas also may be dropped off at any branch of the Ypsilanti District Library.
