Tacoma School May Be Named for Obama

AP, November 25, 2008

A new middle school under construction in Tacoma could be named for president-elect Barack Obama.

But district policy on school names requires people to be dead at least two years or to have already served a presidential term.

Superintendent Art Jarvis asked the school board to alter the policy at the Dec. 11 meeting and put Obama’s name in the running.
