GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Guilford County Board of Education is now taking name recommendations for Aycock Middle School.
The its last meeting, the school board voted to rename Aycock Middle School before the start of the 2017-18 school year, and archive relevant history of the school.
Aycock Middle is named after Charles Aycock who was best known as North Carolina's education governor. However, he was also an advocate for white supremacy.
The board also plans to hold two public forums at the school to discuss the renaming. The date and times of those forums will be announced at a later date.
