Architectural plans are in progress and a tract of land for a new school in Eastern Casey County has been purchased.
Now, it's time to name the new school, which will house pupils in the Middleburg and Garrett elementary school districts.
We think it would be appropriate to name the new modern facility - Jones Park Elementary School - for former owners of the land where the school will be located on Ky. 70 between Liberty and Yosemite.
It would be much better than naming the school after Board of Education members as was done the last time new elementary schools were built in the county.
After all, the Quince Jones family was interested in education and provided a place for children and adults to enjoy tennis and outdoor sports on the land where the school will be built. The Joneses also had a hand in establishing the elementary school in Middleburg.
