Oliver Q. started this petition to Jefferson Elementary School District Bernie Vidales and

We at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School have lost 2 incredible individuals.  The first to talk about was a great leader, veteran teacher, and awesome woman named Lynda Flynn McNesby who of 29 years has been teaching 4th grade with nothing but fun in mind and room to constantly learn more.  She was an advocate for academics and an educational leader to not just the school but the district.  Lynda pushed the students imagination by creating entertaining ways to learn by incorporating "magic" into her lesson plans.  She was a woman of infinite knowledge and a passion for teaching the youth.  We all came to her for guidance and clear answers for when we needed it the most.   Students rave about being in her class and alumni still talk about how great of a teacher is.  She was always in touch with her Irish heritage and embraced everyone's culture/traditions too as she loved the diversity of our school, community, and the bay area.  No one has ever seen her upset and she knew just what to do or say to a student to keep them on check without even raising her voice like a simple, "come on man, really?", in her own cool way while combining it with a "do it yourself attitude" and arm shrug as she walked away.  She's such an awesome mother and amazing wife to her husband. She just had that stature and presence about her that shouted out Rock & Roll!

Next is a kind hearted, caring, selfless, and incredible person named Carol Bowser who was a happily married woman and hard working mother. She was a teacher of the Jefferson Elementary School District for almost 30 years who retired, but continued to help the school of Woodrow Wilson as a substitute. You would see her playing the guitar and hearing her singing to the kids in a classroom.  She cares so much for the students, staff, and loves the community.  As for most, retirement was a time to relax and have fun but she was battling cancer and fought hard til the end.  Carol has always been a happy, loving, and dedicated woman who always had a smile on her face.  She loved sports, music, dance, and had an aura that was fun to be around.  She was someone to talk to that could give you a smile that would make your day but also that stare to make you know when she was serious too, haha.  We want to be able to give back to her and show how much we love her back. Please share this petition to honor this beautiful woman. We love you Carol and we've always been right here with you! <3

We'd like to honor these two by changing the schools name to Bowser-McNesby Elementary School.  They have done so much and made a big impact on the school, students, staff, district, families, and the community.  To commemorate them by changing the schools name would be awesome.  They both worked so much and so hard.  They often talked about culture, family, and pushed for equality.  These women were such amazing people and the school just isnt the same without them.  To many of us, they were powerful women to look up to and such good friends. 

Please help us by making this CHANGE happen!  With your help, we can make this into reality.
