Public input needed for naming of new Easley-area middle school

EASLEY — The School District of Pickens County is asking for suggestions from the public about what to name the new Easley area middle school.

The new middle school will be at the site of the old Easley High School on Pendleton Street.

The school district will consider any name submitted, but keep in mind that according to SDPC board policy, the board generally prefers to name school facilities for recognized geographical areas and not for a person.

Suggestions must be submitted along with a reason for the name by October 19.

Ideas for a new name can be emailed to or mailed to SDPC Communication Services at 1348 Griffin Mill Road, Easley, SC 29640-6997.

A committee of representatives from the Easley attendance area will be appointed to narrow down the suggestions to three names to be submitted to the board of trustees. The board will make the final decision on which name will be selected.
