Rename Knox Trail Middle School to Delongchamp Memorial Middle School
Phillip Delongchamp, known by most as "Mr. D", was an outstanding man that touched the hearts and impacted the lives of every student lucky enough to have him as an educator. Mr. D instilled a passion for education in the hearts of students who previously despised attending school. Every student that Mr. D taught has left his class with fond memories, endless stories and abundant knowledge. He was a man who put all others before himself, selflessly caring for and supporting his students, friends, and family. The tragic and sudden death of Mr. Delongchamp has sent shockwaves through the community, triggering an unprecedented outpouring of support from current and former students, coworkers, and even parents of students. While General Knox's brave journey passing through our town is certainly a monumental piece of our history, Phillip Delongchamp has impacted the lives of countless students in his 43 years as an educator and drastically increased the quality of education provided by SEBRSD in his years here. Mr. D is the greatest educator that has ever graced the halls of our town's schools, and to not perpetuate his legacy would be shameful. If anyone deserves to have their name attached to an educational instituion in this district, it is none other than Mr. Phillip Delongchamp. Please join us in honoring the legacy of a once-in-a-generation educator by signing our petition.
