Rename Lanier after Sgt Juan Navarro

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


This petition will be submitted to the Austin ISD Board of Trustees. They have voted to rename Sidney Lanier High School and Austin LULAC is making the following proposition: 

The Austin Independent School District voted to rename all Confederate named high schools in the district, including Lanier High School. Austin LULAC Council 22318 is proposing to have the campus after Sgt. Juan P. Navarro, a native Austinite and North Austin resident who graduated from the school in 2007. His family came from Mexico and was a first-generation that grew up on Rundberg Lane. He perished in Afghanistan in 2012 and we want the community to forever remember the name of a local hero.

Austin ISD will meet at their headquarters on Monday April 23 where persons will have the opportunity to speak in support. Information available on facebook.com/AustinLULAC and Twitter @AustinLULAC
