Ever since Barack Obama won the general campaign students at the school formally known as Ludlum Elementary School have been campaigning to name the school after the 44th President. After convincing the school board only weeks after the election, the school held its own little inauguration yesterday, becoming the first to adopt Barack Obama's name.
At the name-changing ceremony students wore sweatshirts with the new name and the logo "Yes We Can." As you might guess, the young students are civic-minded — during the campaign they held mock debates and followed both candidates closely.
Schools named after George W. Bush popped up before he made it back to retire in Texas. Would you want your kid, or any kids, to attend a school named after Barack Obama?
