Killeen reader urges KISD board to name school after black educator

Posted

To the Editor:

I recently read that the Killeen Independent School District is considering naming the new elementary school near the airport after (Bobby) Hornsby or (Jimmie Don) Aycock.

I respect both of these choices but feel the name of the new school should be Julia L. Abercrombie Williams, an African- American female who devoted years of teaching in the Killeen school district.

I am asking the school board to reconsider their choice for this school to honor Mrs. Abercrombie’s legacy by naming the school after her.
