      The name should be changed back. This city talks about its strong history yet it wipes out history. Like the destruction of the art mural at Downey High. It was a slap in the face for the alumni of DHS. Taking away this city's history piece by piece. Please return each of the middle schools back to the original names . Why can you honor Doty by naming a auditorium after her or a park. Maybe a field etc. If anyone deserves recognition honor them by naming a part of the any campus after them. Every time I drive by East it makes me shake my head. You have to change Knights too! . It sounds so stupid. Doty Knights, really??? As a former students your taking away our school memories. It will always be East, never Doty.

      So many logical and heart-felt reasons to keep East, "EAST". Our son also graduated from East....not Doty. I will never recognize this ridiculous name change, and I resent as a tax-payer our hard-earned money being spent this frivilous way. Teachers have had to bring supplies, paid for out of their own pockets...yet, something like this travesty is funded. Even though this has been done without the majority approval and will of the residents of Downey, I still want to see the name changed back....and I think it would be a wonderful idea to let Mrs. Doty pay for it.

      Changes to School names should be put to a vote by the tax payers of Downey.
