I did not add "Ibram X. Kendi HS" as an option for several reasons:

a. Dr. Kendi is still alive. He is young and thriving with his whole life ahead of him. It is risky to name after a person who is living (nothing against the living- I happen to be one of them).
b. To my knowledge, Dr. Kendi only lived in the area for a short period of time. He did not make significant changes in the area like Mr. Reed and Mrs. Braxton. Schools should be named after people who had a great impact in that community.
c. The SJ staff did not have "Ibram X. Kendi HS" as an option.
