HANOVER COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The Hanover County School Board has reached a decision regarding the two new names for schools named after Confederate leaders.
The school formerly known as Lee-Davis High School could soon be named Mechanicsville High School, while Bell Creek could replace Stonewall Jackson Middle School.
While the board has signaled support for both of these names, a formal vote is expected on October 13.
Once the board has voted, new mascots will be chosen for the schools. The school board said the mascot selection is a school-based decision.
