Looking at whether to rename Enloe High School

Should Enloe High School be renamed amid questions about whether it was named for a segregationist?

As noted in today's article, Wake County school board chairman Ron Marigotta and school board member John Tedesco said they want to review Enloe's name. They're citing the history lesson that Duke University historian Tim Tyson gave about William G. Enloe's role in Raleigh's integration while he was mayor from 1957 to 1963.

“I wouldn’t want to name a school after a segregationist,” Margiotta said. “We could certainly honor an African American.”
