AMES SCHOOL: Name Chosen For New Elementary
The results of a community survey about the naming of a new Ames elementary school are in.
Respondents to the survey chose “Edwards” over “Washington” 64 to 36-percent. That means the new school will be named Edwards Elementary.
It honors David Edwards, who was a school board member from 1930 to 1948.
The Ames School Board will vote to approve the new name Monday night.
The school is being built on Miller Avenue.
