Coalition members Guy Jones, Jheri Neri, and Albert Ortiz spoke with members of the press at a press conference held prior to the meeting.
Only Anderson Township residents were allowed to speak at this meeting, but hundreds showed up. Tensions were high with many shouting over the speakers and those against the name change even singing the school fight song. The Re-Branding Committee listened to alternating pro and con speeches for two hours, and will be advising the School Board regarding the name change June 12th at 7pm at Nagel Middle School.
