CHAPEL HILL — Elementary School No. 10 is closer to having a name. The Chapel Hill-Carrboro school board will hear recommendations from the naming committee Thursday night.
The naming committee is putting forth two names: Morris Grove Elementary and Eubanks Elementary. Morris Grove would pay tribute to an old African-American school near the school site. Morris Hogan was the free son of a slave and a slave owner. He became a successful farmer and donated land for the school.
Eubanks Elementary was inspired by the name of the road on which the school is located. The committee was looking into whom the road was named after.
The school, which is being built off Eubanks Road and Old N.C. 86, is expected to open in August 2008.
