Should The Field House Bare Anyone's Name?
Havre de Grace Patch asks readers the Question of the Day.
Earlier Thursday, Patch editor Sean Welsh suggested Havre de Grace High School name its yet-to-be constructed field house after Jovan Brooks.
At worst, he suggested, the Warriors' team room in the field house should bear Brooks' name.
Many noteworthy Havre de Gracians have had landmarks named for them—most of them public parks.
James R. Harris Stadium itself is named for a former coach and athletic director at Havre de Grace High School.
Some groups have suggested re-naming the high school after specific individuals.
There are plenty of former Havre de Grace students—too many, really—that have left us too soon. Many of them are deserving of more public recognition than they currently receive.
