No Name Change for Excelsior High School Auditorium

This petition had 641 supporters

We, the undersigned Alumni and friends of Excelsior High School, Norwalk, California, respectfully ask the school board to reject the proposal to rename the Excelsior Union High School Auditorium. The name has served the community well since it's construction in 1924 and it's rebuilding in 1938 after the 1933 earthquake. The building was part of the Works Project Administration and, along with several other of Excelsior's buildings, is registered with the Living New Deal Project.

The Excelsior Union High School Auditorium name is integral to the integrity of the campus we seek to preserve and protect.

We greatly admire the contributions made by Mr. Lee Mitchell to Norwalk and the surrounding communities, but feel there should be a more appropriate way to honor him.
