Randy Long started this petition to The Atlanta Board of Education

The Name Change is prohibited by the Legal Contract Terms of the Contract between the Joseph E. Brown Family and the Atlanta Public Schools/Board of Education created in 1923 where the Brown Family donated the land for the school stipulating that the school had to be named for Joseph E. Brown as a condition of its donation. Mr. Brown was the first Atlanta Public School President (1869-1888) and had given money to help form the APS, was a former Georgia Governor four times, and a former U.S. Senator. The Atlanta Public Schools had approved of Naming a School after Joseph E. Brown earlier that year.

Besides being a Legal Contract Violation, the Name Change would cause a loss of family heritage for the Brown Family, a loss of esteem and history for the many thousands of Alumni who attended the school from 1924 until the present, and a loss of heritage for the surrounding community.
