Christa McAuliffe, Abbot-Downing and Mill Brook. This whole naming process of the school district’s fancy new elementary schools got us wondering how some streets, schools and buildings in town got their names.
And what do we do when we have a question, readers? That’s right, we go to you.
We want you to tell us the stories behind these six folks who were apparently special enough to be commemorated by our fair city. A few sentences about each will suffice.
We’ll publish your answers in an upcoming issue, and one lucky winner will get a $25 gift certificate to a downtown business of his or her choosing. Send your responses to email@example.com by Dec. 20, and happy hunting!
