To the Editor:

The recent announcement that the KISD had purchased property along U.S. Highway 195 adjacent to the State Veterans Cemetery, and with the current concern over the naming of the 33rd elementary school, we can solve the problem of naming of the next one.

There is only one perfect selection. It is unencumbered by personal, political, or racial aspirations. It is historically and geographically perfect.

Anyone with a knowledge of Bell County history would probably approve.

And the choice is: Ding Dong Elementary School.

Though many may think this “tongue in cheek,” this is a serious selection.
