Mrs. Hazel Jackson was a trailblazer and civil rights icon in Lancaster PA. She is absolutely deserving of having Edward Hand Middle School named in her honor after overcoming such adversity as a symbol of hope for our community.

It would be a good idea to change the name of this school. Hazel sounds like a wonderful teacher and good influence on the community.

Why not honor this amazing woman, instead of paying homage to oppression, hate, racism, and bigotry?

I attended Edward Hand middle school. Now that I know who he was it's a disgrace to even repeat his name.

Thanks for adding your voice.
