Wellington Top Candidate For New School Name

By Brenna Angel

LEXINGTON, Ky. – A naming committee for the new elementary school being built on Keithshire Way in Lexington says the school should be called Wellington Elementary.

The Herald-Leader reports that Principal Meribeth Gaines issued the recommendation to the Fayette County Board of Education Monday night, citing the school's proximity to the Wellington neighborhood and Wellington Park.

The naming committee reviewed about 180 suggestions for the school, which is scheduled to open in the fall of next year.
